New and super excited!!! Needing advice
My name is Karrisa. My boyfriend, Dalton, and I are getting excited about starting a conversion! We live in Mesa, Arizona. We aren't ready to purchase a bus, but we are getting close. We've been drawing up ideas, trying to figure out how much we are wanting to spend on the conversion, and when we want to get out of here! We are wanting to live in it full-time. We get random thoughts and ideas and kinda research as they come. I know there is a lot that we aren't preparing for. So some starting out advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!
We are looking for an older bus, our budget for the bus is $6,000 and I'm positive we can find one in our budget. It will be us plus our puppy. (She's small, so no extra room is needed for her)
We are having a hard time finding a place to work on it. We live in a huge neighborhood with HOA. We defiantly cannot store it here, and we don't have an RV gate nor do we have room for one in our backyard. So we need to find a place for storage and a place to work on it.
I've been reading on how difficult it is to get insurance, so any advice with that would be perfect.
We are 1000% set on a conversion and we are ready to travel! Like I said, any advice will be appreciated.
We just want to be as prepared as possible and going into this with as much knowledge as possible. And of course if there are any fellow conversion buddies here in Phoenix, it would be awesome to meet up, help each other out, get advice...all that stuff!
We are very inspired by everyone's Skoolie that we have seen! We are very excited to make something our own and to call it home!
Thank you guys in advance!!
We are beyond excited and cannot wait to start!
