New From China Grove NC

Hi everyone my name is Cory and Iím new to the Skoolie page. I have a old beast bus itís a 1988 Chevy S6000 with a 8.2 Detroit with a Allison AT545 . And yes I know everybody says itís better for a boat anchor but itís been a very good engine to me with no problems. Itís a 32 passenger 8 window mistress that takes all my money and free time. Iím sure just like everybody elseís.
But enough about me how is everybody else doing out there?

I did a forty footer with a roof raise, but lost energy and sold it after the roof raise. I was originally planning to live in it, but changed my mind.
I'm now into shorties. I like to use em as a daily driver.
Plan to make my current shorty a weekend camper.
