Hi everyone! My husband Andy and I are super excited to convert our short vintage step van into a traveling home so we can travel around the US and backpack in every state! Our van is so cute. It reminds me of a cartoon Van! We are a little overwhelmed and still in the dreaming stage. We bought the Van a few years ago in Great Falls MT. It was originally a dry cleaning delivery van and later used to store grain and dead rats. Ewww right! $400 bucks so we weren't complaining! We got it all cleaned out and insulated! Ready or not here we go!

Not quite a Skoolie, but it's in the same vein.

Welcome to our nightmares. You'll get lots of ideas here.

Dead rats must be properly stored or the FDA will have a talk with you.

Or a couple of gentlemen named "Vinny" or "Sal"
Hey! That's not an RV, that's a school bus.
Well thank you for noticing, Captain Obvious
