Skoolie noob

Hello! I hate YouTube! I searched bus conversions and found a couple of videos. Then I fell down the rabbit hole. I watched the rolling vista videos. Im hooked on skoolies now. I have the skills to built about anything. Zero welding skills! I can drive 26 foot box trucks comfortable. I m hoping buses are the same way! I live Dayton Ohio. My wife and I love to camp. Shes looking for a camper. Im looking for a bus! Let the adventures begin!

sticks n staple vs. a steel on steel..... safe and strong. I have owned a trailer. it was hard to keep leak free. constant maintenance on the roof to make sure it would last. I am so glad I have something stronger and safer.

sell the wife on the skoolie idea. show her wrecked rv's, trailers, etc. tell her she is the most important thing in your life and that you couldn't take the chance of her getting hurt in something that wasn't safe!

Some reviews from RV owners. I didn't realize it is common for a new RV to be in for repairs up to 10x's in the first year. WTF
These 2 videos alone would be enough for me. Apparently the Lemon Law doesn't apply to RV's.

go go go

Sounds like you're on the right track. We've sure had a good time with it. Took us a month of watching craigslist and shopping around to find right bus for us. If you can build, it will be great.
