Temporary Roommate offer

Hello. I am in search of someone who owns a skoolie that would be willing to let me temporarily live with them on their skoolie...days, weeks, months...open. Location open. My purpose is to experience the skoolie lifestyle so I can choose best size for myself. Willing to pay and assist with skoolie ‘chores’. I live in Dallas, Texas. I can meet you at your location...looking for some where U.S. or Canada. Me: I am a single 50yr early retired female, no kids, no pets, no smoker, medium/tall, can wield a hammer, curious to learn.

You should really include your location and maybe a bit more about yourself.

I should point out one possibility, there's a Skoolie Homestead in Jessup, GA run by some good friends of mine, Brett and Renee. They have several folks who rent a spot there to live and work on their buses. They have some basics like a community outdoor shower and flushing toilet, and you'd see a variety of different types and ideas and be able to get hands on.

This is their Facebook group, if that sounds like something you'd be interested in, join and post there, tell them Josh and Hillary sent you.

I don't have Facebook but I think I would be interested in this. I'm working on a schedule and I keep thinking I could move into my bus sans solar in the winter and I've been considering it.
Just posting here so I can find it in a few months and ask you about it.

For the original poster, good luck. Have you considered renting a motor home for a month just to get a feel for this life?

I rented a tiny house for a night so I could get a feel for living in a small space. I learned that I really really really hate tiny houses, not because of the size but because of how the space is typically utilized.

Jules, check out either artvangrow or Bogan_bus on Instagram. They have a skoolie and are building a community in Washington. If you weeld a hammer that may be useful to them.
