Hello! I'm Here to Learn Stuff!

I've just decided that I'm going to be buying a bus and building a skoolie. Since I'm going to be living in it for a fair chunk of the year(s), it's important to me to do it right.
It will be just me (most of the time) in there, so I'm not looking for a small-town-on-wheels, but I enjoy some cubic to sit in and practice my music, so I'm not looking for a short bus, either. Right now mid-size feels best.
So I will be asking a lot of questions, and some of them will see really dumb to those of you who have been living the skoolie life.
Anyway, see you around!

I've been proven wrong before, but it seems to me that if you're uninformed on a subject, the only dumb question is one you don't ask, because you'll never know the answer. And sometimes there is no wrong or right answer to a question, just what works best for you.

Have a look at the threads linked in my sig (and others I have created or commented on), that should give you a good start on gathering info. Lots of good folks here with other knowledge as well. To view threads a member has commented on or created, click the member name on one of their posts, click "See more posts" or "View profile", then click "All threads" or "All posts" under their "Statistics" tab. Welcome, and good luck!

welcome to the community! I will answer whatever I can. We all start out somewhere. The first step is simple, how big of a bus and what type. from there you can build your knowledge!
good luck and happy bus hunting
