Hi everyone!

Thanks for letting me part of the community!

My wife and I are currently full-time RVers and we're making the switch to a skoolie. We have not yet bought a bus yet but we're ready to now and we're currently shopping.

Our knowledge on the renovating process is limited. We'd like to keep total cost under 15k and we're hoping to have the project complete in 4 months.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Hi Derek! Welcome!

I bought my bus here: Public Surplus: Auction #1682539

I'm about 1/3 way through my renovation (but already living on the bus) and I've spent, including the cost of the bus, around $4000.

I look forward to seeing what you guys buy and what you do with it!
