Hello from Idaho!

Hi everyone! Excited to start this journey 🤙🏼
So long story short the wife and I got a 2006 international CE300, and you guessed it. We are starting the conversion process!
My back ground is aerospace machinist and the better half works as a school counselor.
So I brake stuff and she tells me everything is going to be okay 🤣.

We are past the point of removing the subfloor (which was nasty and super rotten) and are to the fun part of being able to design the floor plan

That's all I can think of now I'm sure we will start a build thread or something 🤷🏻*♂️

Welcome to the site T.o-r.j. and good luck on your build.
That is a fairly large bus and should be plenty of room if its only you and your wife in it.

Lots of good info on here, and feel free to ask if you get stumped on how to fix or do something along the way. Plenty of knowledgeable and friendly folks on here to help guide you through the process...

The plan is to use it as a family project with the goal being to haul about 6 people during summer trips.
Really looking forward to documenting our progress

Hello there, neighbor. We're in Idaho too (for the moment anyway). Just outside of Yellowstone, but soon to be moving westward to central Idaho.

Nice! We have a 20 acre plot just outside of harrison (just south of coeur d'alene)
We have been thinking about hosting something involving these kinds of conversions! Send me a message if you would be seriously interested in having a meet/rally!

Welcome! We are in Sandpoint, ID. We've been wanting to get down to bike the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes but the bus is not terribly road worthy yet. Inside is gutted and have new spray foam in. Sounds like we have a good NW contingent though!

This skoolie thing is definitely catching on, I'm sure there are a ton of northern idaho conversions in the woodworks 🤣
