Just got the Skoolie bug! Trying to learn everything I can!

Hi all,
I've been lurking in the forum for a few days and it's really great. I basically figured out the toilet setup I want to use on this forum. (diy composting w/ fan. Black water tanks DO NOT sound fun!).
I want to get a shorty and outfit it for the me, wife, and 2 boxers but that's basically all I know right now. No idea what kind of bus to get or anything but that's why I'm here.

any advice is welcome and thanks for having me!

Planning your toilet before you get your shorty? Yup, you've got the bug alright.

Strangely enough, most of us focus on food prep first.

Welcome, you'll fit in just fine.

Your dogs must be well trained to use the potty, what breed?

yeah, that's the plan. I have to go slow because my wife is skeptical.

I have to make it as comfortable as possible for the wifey. Bathroom seemed the most logical place to start. We want to be as self sufficient as possible and not have to rely on outside hookups. I know we want to add a shower, and a kitchen too.

Agreed. When away from home having a number of cooking methods available will help you to be able to eat hot food. Remember Murphy's law?
