Hello Skoolie Fans My Name is Michael and I live in Germany. I bought a short International 3800 I will convert it into a camper that is my plan ....
Now I need a lot of informations, such simple things like
Wich Tire pressure

Tire pressure should be listed on a sticker on the front bulkhead or side of the bus.

Welcome to the site Michael.
The best way to get answers to your questions is to peruse the many info filled threads on this site. Many, if not most, of your questions are in there.

Post pics of your bus and it could help to know what recommendations to offer, perhaps...

Howdy Michael!


It is so cool that we are starting to see more skoolies in Europe! There are a few other Europeans that have skoolies and have shared with us.


Thank you for joining and sharing your adventure.

I've had that model of bus. Tire inflation is sort of a choice. The factory recommendations are all high. Mine says 105 lbs but I'm running 90 and it rides a lot better. 85lbs or more and you should be fine. You could always get ahold of the bus builder and give them your vin number. They'd be able to tell you for sure.


Are you a football fan? My wife and I support Celtic FC but we like to watch a few Bundesliga games.

You bus has a Dortmund color scheme by default!
