This will be our 2nd go at building a skoolie. Our first bus "Big Black" has served us well for about 5 years and over 20,000 miles of road trips, mostly going out west to snowboard. We decided it was time to go a little bigger and add a few more things as our previous bus was pretty basic.
Here is our Freightliner we just picked up. It's fleet number in its previous life was "623" so that will have to do until we can come up with a name for it. It is a 6 window, 34 passenger bus, CAT 3126 motor and auto tranny.
We won't be living in it full time, just using it for various road trips and camping. Here is what we have planned so far;
- Futon that folds down flat with some sort of bunk overtop
- Counter top (with some sort of burners, possibly a sink)
- A booth with table
- Bathroom (camping toliet)
- RV heater (Possibly AC too)
After we get all that stuff in we are going to determine what we want to do with the remaining space.
We started putting some cedar panels on the walls and working on the flooring. Planning on painting it this weekend.
Have been gathering a lot of helpful info on the forum, looking forward to sharing the build with everyone!
