3 Children/ 2 adults

Hey does anyone have any advice for people just getting started (don't even have a bus yet) we're going to have 3 children by July 2020 and there's me and m husband. We would rather go smaller so we can travel off road. Also hoping to go as far as Brazil. Looking for floor plans for 3 children to sleep comfortably and maybe pick up a Aunt so it actually might be 3 adults.

"Go smaller" is a bad plan for a family of 5 or 6. People don't stack that well and everyone needs enough room to spread their wings a bit.

And what do you mean by "off road?" Most school buses will get stuck in a flat field of grass is it rains.

Just want to make sure you're grounded in reality before you start spending!

I mean we don't know anything and have never road tripped before so how ever much off road we can go we're going to go and also I'm more concerned about driving on the roads in Mexico with the extreme potholes which is why I want to go small for maneuverability.

I suggest you meet some people with buses and experience them first hand if you can. It's hard to impress on someone the difference every foot can make.. I know it's not the time of year for skoolie folks to be that far north but i bet you can find a few that will let you take a peek!
