Future Skoolie Toterhome Owner
I spent the last year driving around the eastern US roughing it in my SUV or getting a hotel while racing my UTV. I am on a mission to build a toterhome styled bus. I have just started looking at builds, but I haven't seen anything quite like what I am looking to do.
Most racers that stay at the event venues either have a 1 ton truck and a 38'+ enclosed trailer with a garage and living quarters or a toterhome/trailer combo. The cheaper of these two options outfitted to my liking would be in the $40k+ range and can easily get into $100k+ territory. I'm hoping I can build a skoolie and come in at the much lower price point.
I am still working on what I need in my floorplan, but I am currently thinking that something with 15'-20' of living area will fit my needs. Then I can either pull my offroad toys in a trailer, or I may look into adding a flatbed over the rear axle of a full size bus and chop off whatever I don't need from the rear of the chassis. That would allow me to go without a trailer if I am only taking one vehicle, or hook up to a trailer if I need to take more than one vehicle.
Hoping to get the ball rolling on this thing and have it tested and ready for a coast to coast trip for King of the Hammers early next year. I've been on enough forums to know that everyone loves pictures, so I attached some to give you an idea of why I want a skoolie. Looking forward to picking up some information from the forum and sharing a build.
