New Skoolie Enthusiast

Hello everyone, I just wanted to take a moment to say hello and introduce myself. Iím Gord, from Ajax Ontario, Canada. My wife and I have recently come around to the idea of vacationing a little more self contained and a little more comfortably. After spending a short time looking at motor homes and RVs we found the skoolie community. It seemed kind of an automatic fit. Not only a project we can work on together, but a way to end up with something custom to our tastes and style.

Though Iím afraid Iím coming into this with a lot of enthusiasm and little practical experience or knowledge. From what I have seen though, there is an abundance of both here! Looking forward to exploring more and working my way through the amazing information on this forum!

Gord.

Welcome! I'm doing a full-up 45' coach bus and I have no experience even in home improvement.


So, I'm right there with you. You CAN do it!!

That makes two so far...I don't know a thing about tuning a school bus into an RV other than it has been fun so far. Even when I screw something up. Plenty of resources and friendly folks here to help. Welcome!

We all started with no experience with skoolies ... after all, there is no "school" for skoolies except right here!
