Hello from The Mountain State...please allow me to introduce myself
I'm Travis, and live in Southeastern West Virginia. 43 y/o teacher and Adventure Tourism Proprietor. Have wanted a skoolie for years. Brother and I almost bought one 10 years ago, but didnt. 2 weeks ago, we had a dozen fellow riders (we do guided motorcycle tours) visit us from Florida. They had recently purchased a bus and converted it to a cargo ship called The Factory of Sadness. After hauling all their bikes and gear nearly 1000 miles, from South Florida to our mountain, the bus simply refused to leave us. As soon as the front tires left our driveway and touched the pavement, she shut down and refused to budge. The owners made arrangements to get home, and offered to sell us the bus. So we bought it. New tires and batteries, recently serviced, central air, a 5k watt genny, class 5 hitch installed, with a hitch hauler, 2 new futons up front and a partition installed 8 ft behind the barriers. I've visited Skoolie.net many times, but this is my first visit as a bus owner. Haven't had the opportunity to work on The Grinebago yet, but downloaded a service manual and diagnostics manual. Excited to get this electrical gremlin sorted so we can start burning diesel. Happy to be here!
