My Short Skoolie With a Roof Raise

I finally got around to putting together a video of building out my bus. It is a 21 short skoolie with a 6inch roof raise. I've been living in it for about 1.5 years. Still loving it! I am currently living in montana building another skoolie for a customer.



Let me know what you think of the video. I'm brand new to editing so it was definitely a learning experience!

video was fine. I like the 6" roof raise...that little bit would make a world of difference on any bus.

I am impressed. Looks like a super good quality job-- it amazes me at the talented people there are in this world. Very few people possess all the skills necessary to do what you have done.

I'm 63 and just don't have the energy or the patience to do anything like that.

Yeah it makes a huge difference. Everyone who lives in a short skoolie or van always comments on how big the inside feels because of the extra head room! Plus I'm 6'1" so I'd be scratching my head on the ceiling all the time if it wasn't raised.

Thank you, I appreciate it! I Definitely learned a lot of do's and don't's that I am incorporating on my new build for a customer now.

After that build I am free as a bird so feel free to hire me out to build you one haha.
