Anyone at least know of someone who's attempted to add slide outs to a skoolie? I definitely like the idea.

Not as far back in the old threads as I thought.

Will be doing the roof raise and starting on slides this summer. We are going to be doing the roof raise on PNWSteve’s bus first. Just waiting on a little bit better weather to get going.

Hopefully we are getting close.

It has been a really wet Spring so far. A bit windy as well.

OP: If you can track down a copy, Dave Galey has written several bus conversion books including one on building slides. He was a retired engineer who became quite the conversion guru.

Speaking of Dave, does anyone know what happened to Enterprise when Dave passed?

Ha ha!! Not even! PNWSteve’s bus 🚌 is the first one I have been involved in. His is going well and at 10” is going to be very nice looking. It’s not really all that hard just time consuming.
