Greetings all. New Skoolie owner here, a 24' 1992 Bluebird Mini-Bird is about to be my home. I paid too much for a half-assed conversion done by another veteran, who was rather obviously desk-bound given the lack of common-sense ways of building things designed to go and bounce around. But that's another thing.

I was a submariner in the US Navy a few years back, and having become rather fed up with society and humanity, I am going to attempt to retro-fit the incomplete conversion into something capable of being lived out of full-time while moving around; maybe stopping for food once-in-awhile. I've got some really good ideas, and some really crackpot ideas rattling around inside my head, and I would hope that some of the more experienced you'sers here might be able to help steer me away from running aground in case you've tried something whack-a-doodle before.

Cheers!

From the looks of things, I'm probably about 20 minutes SouthWest of Tango and his '46 at the moment, but I am hoping to change that pretty soon.

Thank you, sir. All the crackpot ideas are kind of why I wanted to go the Skoolie route, although I have seen a fwe crackpot things on some more typical motorhomes.
