I want to buy a school bus and pay somebody to convert it to a RV

hi guys,

my name is felix starck and im from germany.



https://www.facebook.com/felixstarcko/

i want to shoot a new documentary in the us. im trying to buy a school bus and get a rv convertion. im a total amateur so i want somebody to build it for me.

of course we will pay for it. we really like the skoolie from outside found: The Outside Found Bus | Outside Found

we would have to do the conversion together because i need the shots for the new documentary - thats why we dont really want to buy a converted one...

so looking forward
felix

If you make it to FL, hit us up and we will cook some food and have some beers.
I've not been to Berlin, but have friends I've visited in Koln and Dusseldorf. I LOVE the Kolsch beers!

Build your self one to show you can really do it first.

I would not hire a builder that can't build his own. No references.

When I sign building contracts with people to build their house, we always look at Finished Builds of Mine as references to set the clients mind at ease about the likelihood of their project being completed. They need to see experience.

Now if you want that bus built in Canada by a German Experienced building contractor and Bus Builder, shoot me a PM and we can work out the numbers.

I also work for a bus shop that keeps 400 routes on the go. We always have used buses available to buy for conversions.
A true one stop shop.

Thx to the mods for cleaning this thread up.

The "Outside Bus" looks really good. Nice simple conversion with a open floor plan.

Felix, feel free to add a list of everything installed on that bus, and how you use it.

Do you boon dock?

Camp grounds?

What kind of bathroom? How long between dumping the tanks?

Kitchen needs? Full kitchen or half?

Electrical?

Ect?

Nat

Nat, bear in mind that Felix is in Germany and does NOT understand American Slang. You'll have to explain everything to him.
