Howdy from new Van Hool owners

Hi. I'm Melissa and my bf is AJ. We just purchased a 97 Van Hool 45' (M11+ Cummins) to convert to an RV. We have about 5 weeks to get it to a point where my 17 yr old son can live in it while he finishes high school and then we'll continue playing with it after he's finished. We think the basics of functional bathroom, basic kitchen, bed and table for studying will do it. We haven't yet figured out the best stopping point for demolition, but it's only been three days, so we'll get there.
I know it's not a typical "skoolie," but I appreciate being included in your great group anyway.

Welcome to the group!! We're in the middle of our first skoolie conversion, and all the way through, I've been dreaming of how I'd like Bus v2.0 to look. I'm pretty sure I want to do a coach the next time. No regrets for having gone the skoolie route this time - have gained lots of experience.

I do look forward to following your build!!
