Michelle and Steve Lawson, from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. love traveling with their seven children: Caleb, 16, Jacob, 13, Joshua 10, Matthew, six, Liam, aged five, Charlotte aged two and and nine-month-old Owen.

They decided to buy a school bus for $14,000 and spend $17,000 and six months converting it into their home before hitting the road on their first trip.

“‘We love to travel with our kids, and since we home school and own our own photography business, it was usually very doable for us,” said Steve.
