I don't think that will be a problem. Most people don't have the ambition to take on projects like this or they are simply lazy and go the easy route and buy a prefab trailer or RV.

I think our real competition is from the foreigners south of the boarder.

Re: Your Skoolie on TV?


I "live" on I-5, and I see convoys of used school buses heading south all the time. And when I bought Millicent, they told me they were not real worried about selling their used inventory, because a buyer from South Of The Border would surely clean them out sooner or later.

I wouldn't mind becoming a TV star, no matter what happened to the price of buses. The groupies, Cal -- the groupies!!!

Zip ties and marbles -- I think I get it. Bought some sheer curtain material today and will try it tonight. If it doesn't work well, I'll go for the spandex (none in stock in this county).

Re: Your Skoolie on TV?


I found an expert to ask about rear projection screen material, and he said he uses a...

bed sheet.

Sure enough, my trusty old bed sheet seems to work fine.
The curtain sheer material works also -- a bit brighter, naturally.
So I'm all set.

Now back to becoming TV stars.
