Good morning skoolie land! I am just getting started on this chapter of my life, and have been dreaming/slow planning a bus conversion for a little over a year now. We will financially be in the market in about 6 months, but as of yet have nowhere to work on our bus. I haven't used an online forum for a couple of years now, so, I may be doing this wrong... let me know if I am posting in the wrong place, and I'll fix it asap. I am looking for some space to do our conversion on, and think that it will probably take a little over a year, as so many of our months in the PNW prohibit outdoors kind of work. I have been keeping my eyes on some auctions, and am partial to the CROWNS from Cali circa 1980's generation... what beauties those are! We are looking to spend $5000 or less on the bus, and also wondering what kind of mechanics there are up in the PNW for busses. I am not sure what else to post at this point, other than perhaps pictures of my cardboard models that I've made over the year!!

Heck, yeah ! Let's see what you got.

Bonus points if no pictures are sideways.
