Hi from Tennessee

Thanks for having us. We just got our skoolie home and can't wait to get her converted into a weekend/travel bus. I'm scouring the forums to find tutorials and ideas. It will be for hubby and I, our teen son, 3 small pups, and occasionally our grandson. We don't plan to have a dedicated bathroom, and only a small kitchen. We would like to run 12v as well as 30 amp plug in service and the option to add a generator or solar in the future. And we are trying to decide how to safely buckle everyone without loosing the space.

Any links to floorplans and wiring help is appreciated.

The story on our bus....She is from Govdeals auction in DC. We won her the day the ice storms started. We were told she didn't run, and since it was a 10 hour drive, we hired a transport service. One delay after another because of the road conditions either in DC or Tennessee, and 2 weeks later she is finally home. We are excited to hear that she does run with a jumpstart. Took batteries to O'reilly yesterday. They are charging them to see if we need new ones or not.

Our build will be slow as our time is limited, but we are excited.
