Agreed. The internet and youtube killed skoolies. They are going the way of wooden boats 20 years ago. Could not insure them and marinas all over would not accept them. Not because they were unsafe but every wanker with zero sense bought the worst ones and they sunk at the dock or were abandoned leaving marinas to pay for their being scrapped.
Same is happening here.
I was going skoolie twenty years ago but I talked to many knowledgeable people first and thought better of it and bought a coach. Way better but still a hassle. Sold that and now have a one ton van and a simple trailer. Fema one never used. Stripped it and built it out right. Does every thing a Skoolie can and more. Can hit any campground with no hassle.
Helped four buddies set up their skoolies over time and all of them have since sold out and quit it. They all saved a lot doing it but they learned how skoolies are looked down on over time and for good reason. All of it not the fault of responsible owners. Soon it will be near impossible to own one as they will be regulated out of existence.
I still love the concept but they are too popular for the wrong people.
