I just joined Skoolie today and this is my first post. My Skoolie idea is this,find a mid fiftys Chevy Gmc or Ford it all depends on condition, price, whatever suits my fancy, about 35'. Then buy a 85-90 class A RV. Fully operational, ready to roll. They go for about 5K. Strip the RV to the chassis, put the bus body on the chassis, then use all the rv parts [except cabinets] and build my fantasy.I would raise the roof high enough to see out the windows without stooping. I have a metal working friend, with all the tools and experience. A one stop shop.I can do all the interior myself,[with some help from Skoolie folks].
I like the old truck look and the idea of a fairly late [20years?] drive train. I know it's going to be more work than I think but so what?
Thanks for any feed back
