Weight Balance?

How o you figure out weight balance when doing your build plan?

Or is it not a issue in a Skoolie?

Having the weight low is more important than having it perfectly balanced. Don't put everything heavy on one side! Put the really heavy stuff over the axles.

Low and centered. Between the axles.

Our currant build calls for no over head storage all building below windows and just a few walls. Playing on paper now for our planned layout.

With a planned back east trip of 2-3 weeks and a build that we plan to do over 3 months I'm working out as much as we can now. And yes we have plenty of help once back east.
