Skoolie Needed for Life Adventure

Hello Skoolie Fans!

My husband and I need a skoolie ready to roll down the road with us to our next journey in life.

We are selling our house in Denver, CO, selling most of our stuff, and moving into a bus to live in Oregon for a year while my husband goes back to school. It's our hope that I can also take time off to focus on my health and finding my new path.

To do this, we need a skoolie to travel and live in. We'll be in the bus for at least a year, maybe more if things go the way we want. It is our dream to shed our stuff and material possessions and live a more simple life, closer to nature, and on a path that we choose.

Why a skoolie? Well, my husband was a school bus driver after high school and some of his fondest memories where of that job. Since then he's always wanted a skoolie for recreation, but we are even more excited to live in one.

Please contact me with any skoolies that are live-in ready.

Thank you for any advice or assistance you can provide.

Georgia and Derek

why not buy a bus and a camper and live in the camper while you go to school and finish your skoolie, the fun part is building it!

Would love to do our own, but that increases the complexity of the situation. Thanks for the suggestion though.

We've got a pretty decent budget since we are selling our house.It would just depend on the bus details. Can you throw a figure?

First, there's Ad Hunt'r. You can search all of Craigslist with it. Narrow down your search with the column on the left. Plain buses and conversions will be under Cars/Trucks for sale, and partial/complete conversions will most likely be under Rv/Camp.

Ad Hunt'r - Search ALL of Craigslist™ and more!

Here's three I saw today. Can't really narrow it down to closer to your area, since I don't know where that is.

https://columbus.craigslist.org/rvs/4980939901.html

bus rv NICE

https://huntington.craigslist.org/rvs/5040424139.html

Good luck!

*eta: Never mind I just noticed that you're in CO. Hopefully the Ad Hunt'r link will be helpful for you.
