We call her Kraken - Ford e450 2000 7.3L Diesel
And it begins!
Unlike most of you who have planned your conversion and laid a vision, our experience is different. We never imagined we would be immersed in this project.
Our eldest daughter declared in November she wanted a bus for Christmas. After we stopped laughing, we realized...our teenager just asked for more family time, to fuel her sense of adventure. We bought the bus.
We've chimed in here for the past few weeks getting things in order, but here is our official forum launch.
We are in Canada, and have learned the trials of these bus conversions from the legislation angle. It's not so simple up here for us. After sorting out just getting it home (thank you fellow Canandian Skoolie-ers!), and the insurance fiascos, we finally have it home and ready to begin.
We will be using the bus more like a living room on wheels to encourage adventure in our kids. The aim will be more boondocking and less parks.
To start we met some basic requirements to get it titled to an RV, but now we move on to more of the polished touches.
For now, I introduce, The Kraken.
