The other new guy :-)

Hello from North Carolina! The wife and I are looking at buying a bus this year, and doing the conversion on it ourselves and living in it full time. So, any advice, tips, hints and etc are GREATLY appreciated, lol.

Thank you!

Chris

Welcome Guys --- And I'll go ahead and say it before everyone else does...the best thing you can do is read all the build threads you can find here. You will begin to paint a picture of what ideas will work for you as well as learn what boondoggles to avoid based on the experience of others.

Have fun, develop your plan and jump in.

Howdy and welcome!

X1 what Tango said. I will add to that doing searches on the 'net for school bus conversions, skoolies, tiny houses, etc. for ideas.

Best of luck to y'all!

Thanks Tango! That was the thought that I'd had as well.
