New and excited

Hey all,

I am just getting into the skolie life and purchased my 5 window short school bus today!

My vision for the bus is a bit unique. I am kinky and want to style the insides as a dungeon while having all the elements of a really cozy conversion for long distance trips.

Specifically that includes a decor that can be a bit mideval, hard points, privacy and really good soundprofing.

I am interested in meeting others who may have adopted their buses to unique interests.

Sorry to slay your unicorn, but there was a user on the /r/skoolies subreddit not long ago who was asking about the best ways to attach BDSM dungeon gear to a school bus body. Maybe you were that user?

Hi, welcome to the forum.
While not exactly kinky, my bus will be customized to my particular interests.
Mostly vanilla, but who's to say?

If you want a stone interior, the model railroad crowd sculpts and paints amazingly realistic stone out of xps foam. They are doing it in scale, making cliffs and mountains, but it would be much easier for you to do it life size, making one thin face of stone (or brick, really) at a time.

It isn't very durable, but its light, easy and cheap to make, and easy to repair. Would be perfect for the ceiling and walls above the waistline. Compared to paint, thin blocks of foam stone would be stunning, and help quiet and insulate the bus.

There are many videos on this. Here's one to get you started:

While most here seek a home on wheels, I spend most of my 'home' time in my workshop. I like to tinker and build and practice lost art, such as neon bending. I intend my build to be more of a shop on wheels, with a small bedroom. The electrical work will be most customized part of my coach.
