ft pierce is a real dump. I have family and friends there.
I lived in Vero Beach for a year. Hated it.

Quick update!
We took the (unfinished) skoolie to the park! We had a blast, passed by the in laws so we could load up everybody mountain bikes. Because, you know...we have a bus ;)
Put one bench back in, so the child seat can be buckled in properly:


The family about to drive off:


Parked at the park:


First of many adventures!

We did, and yes it was memorable! Ride was a bit on the rough side, but my heavy foot just could not slow down the beast!

Quick note:
Last week or so, I posted about fixing the turn signals. Didn't mean to sound like I had no help, so I'm editing here.

Thanks to my brother, I was able to fix the issue with the lever assembly.

He actually wanted me to be specific (rough translation from Italian to follow): "please explain that your brother, the homeless starving hobo from Italy used to fix everything with parts found in the dumpster, told you how to fix the problem at first shot?"

So there you have it, thank you big brother !!!

Yes, having help is always great.
Dude, I thought I was looking at one of my pictures when I saw you in the drivers seat above...
You and I have similar features, at least it would seem. Although my shorts are much shorter!

Nice bus, looks like you are having fun with the conversion! I live in Miami and my wife and I are looking into purchasing a larger bus to convert. I was wondering what dealer you purchased it from?
Thanks
