Booker....

Trying to share in our shake at a skoolie build...our plan is to full time it, mostly while “docked” if we set sail, it wouldn’t be for much longer than a week as we both have responsibilities to family and work, but full time in the bus. Trying to get some eye candy up on here, the bus will speak far better for itself than I can describe....16hrs in demo and site prep work for the docking so far! This is gonna be awesome!!!

If I can just figure out how to post pics...?!?!

Most of your pics showed up sideways - there seems to be a lot of that going around, so don't feel too stupid for it.

Nice looking rig! Year/make/model/length/engine/transmission? If I read the picture right, that's the first time I've seen "factory" insulation on the frame under the floor! And someone did a right good job of insulating the body, too. You have a great start!

If I were you I'd keep the paint job.

Do you have a genny? Most bookmobiles seem to.

Welcome to the madness!

I think the info is in my “garage?” Farber Specialty Vehicles did the up-fit. Thanks, I feel I did my homework to put us in the best posture for a build. We are fortunate to know electricians, plumbers and cabinet makers to help us out...

Rainy day....

Jeannie and I pulled all the fluorescent light, the FRP ceiling and the front desks...discussing ideas on the flooring....the carpet is glued down to 1/2 plywood.....tacky still, we may cover it with something thin before we cover it with vinyl plank for longevity...oh and the ceiling is foamed...
