New Skoolie conversion in South Carolina

Hi All!

My husband and I just bought a Thomas International bus 🚌 and we are so excited to be weekend warriors with our two little kids. We have a 4 year old and 1 year old and would love any extra ideas on this age especially. We think itís a midsize bus. We havenít measured from the outside yet but it doesnít feel like a true short bus. Weíre so excited to get started with demolition. Our goal is to have it finished by next March. Excited to join this community!

That is a nice Thomas Vista you got there. I assume it's a T444E powered diesel bus. Welcome aboard!

Sweet little rig for a growing family, is it 6 windows along the sides?
Welcome to the looney bin!
Those who say that it cannot be done should not interrupt the people doing it.

Looks like a really nice base to work with. Check out the forums, and ask your questions in the search bar upper right. What you cannot find, ask away. There are people on here with knowledge in almost all areas of mechanicals and conversion. WELCOME!

Seriously, though, that bus looks like it's in very nice condition. Welcome!
