Sanity check / Recommendations / expectation leveling.
I need some level setting and a reality check. I want to do a skoolie and I have a whole bunch of things that I want but I need some experienced minds to level set me and tell me what is feasible and what is not.
My family and I are in the process and changing our traveling castle. Right now we have a 27-year-old 26 ft Class C which we love, but with 2 adults, 3 kids and a dog we need something bigger or better suited for us.
We are not a fulltime family but we go out a dozen weekend a year and at least two 2 or 3 weeks cross country trips a year. We love RVing and would love to do it as much as we could.
We mostly stay at state and national site and do a little boondocking but very little.
I have been looking at Skoolies for a while and love the look, vide and simplicity but I cannot find a used one that meets our needs, which why I am emailing you.
What we are looking for is:
- Queen bed in the back
- 3 Bunk beds (3 on top of each other)
- Dinette for 6
- Kitchen with sink, dual Fridge and gas stove
- Full bathroom (shower, toilet, sink)
- Water tank
- Grey tank
- Propane tank
Would like to have:
- Solar panel with a 12-volt system
- Black Tank
- RV entry door
- Screens on windows
- Outside Shower and 110V plugs
Also, I would like to keep the RV as short as possible. 30ft would be ideal but could live with a little longer.
Now here is the surreal part…. Our budget. I originally had planned for $25,000 but would go to $32,000 to really get what we want. I looked at your website and know that I am under budget for a finish RV.
Let me know your thoughts.... Thank you
