My partner and I have talked about converting a van for years - and a while back actually started reaching out to sellers and seeing a few. Throughout this time - we kept getting drawn more towards buses, and have recently got ourselves a short skoolie.
We're intending to build a road trip / weekend warrior camper. We're not looking to 24/7, but we both work remote and would certainly love the chance to do some longer road trips/work at the same time. We've got family all over the country (neither of us are OH natives, we've done a fair bit of moving around - but love Columbus), and we road trip a lot as it is.
We settled on an 09' Chevy 6.0L Vortex (Gas) shortie (feels strange to call it a short-bus, seems to be certainly on the bigger side of what we were used to seeing). I'll have to post some pics when we start our conversion thread - but I feel confident we got a pretty solid bus. This forum and others were pretty helpful as we figured out what bus was best for us!
Looking forward to getting lost with all the suggestions/guides on the forums here!
