Hi we're new to the skoolie world!

Hi we're new to owning a "short" bus but we're in love already! This is Gen1. She is a 1984 short bus. Can't wait to send her out into the skoolie world!

Welcome bluedane

That is a tiny bus, and the first time I've seen that model. Are you doing a full build on your new treasure? Camper or live-in? I'm going to take a guess that is a gasser.

You'll find a lot of valuable information here. I'm curious to see what you make out of that bus. I'm guessing there's still to many seats in there.

Good luck with your build. We're all watching.

We have already taken all the seats out and built beds in it. We're primarily using it to camp. I'm in love already!

And they say white vehicles always look clean. That looks like such a cute project. Out of curiosity what's the mileage on that things?

I'd be interested in your opinion of how those handle, and drive.
Look forward to watching your progress.
