New guy saying "Hi"

Thanks for adding me! Been wanting to do a Skoolie for a few years now, but we are so close we can taste it now. I look forward to everyone's advice and input. I have built a 5x8 squaredrop camper last year and we love to camp in it still...but, the skoolie is for long term...we have 5-8 more years before retiring and we want to be able to take our time with one and do it as close to right the first time as we can.

Try and keep it drivable and keep it exercised. Before you build take it out and campin it and you will build you a better bus.
