Hi everyone! I've been stalking these forums for a little bit while doing tons of researching into skoolies. My lease is up sometime around March 2019 and I'm really wanting to find a small to mid-sized bus, shuttle bus, or even a 170" sprinter van for myself and two small dogs. I would love to build one, but I have no place to do that (apartment won't even allow you to do an oil change in their lot), absolutely zero experience, and I need to figure out a loan. While building would be ideal, I realize it may not be in the cards for me yet, so I have been looking for something that meets my needs.
If you know of anything in the small to mid-sized range, well insulated, set up to be fully off-grid (composting toilet, solar power, no black water tanks, fully self-contained) I would appreciate a point in that direction. This will be a full-time home for me and I would be working from home much of the time, (and won't have much access to hookups, hence the need for off-grid).
Thanks and nice to meet everyone!
