Hello new member here

Hi, my name is Drew, ive been lurking on here gathering knowledge for a few months preparing to finally buy a bus. Finally found a '95 11 window international thomas (screws inside not rivets!) T444 at545 (i love driving slow lol) of the weird half dog nose variety a week ago. So far still fighting seat bolts, waiting to buy an angle grinder - fortunately i got a 3000w inverter installed without issue so i can plug in wherever as my driveway doesnt technically exist.

My wife, two smallish kids, dog and I have been fulltime vandwelling for a few years - 1st inside a 1990 g20 pro conversion named Kamé, then in a 1974 c35 dually with a truck camper named Johnny Backpack, lastly in a 1987 g20 panel van named Kame Senin Ni. Time for the kids to have their own rooms now so skoolie it is. Anyway, Hello all.

Interesting bus names.
I get the truck camper.
But what's the other ones mean?

Kame senin is a cartoon character in dragon ball z who wears a turtle shell, the van was one of the high top conversions so it made sense for the 1st one. The 2nd van "ni" is two in japanese so since the two vans were so similar we took the easy route
