New to the game

Hello friends,
My name is Matt. My wife Jamie and I have taken the first step and purchased our skoolie a 95 ford carpenter bus that we have started converting. We are excited to start this journey and look forward to collaboration with you all!

Welcome !

You've got much reading, planning and scheming to do. What are your plans for your bus? Full timers? Toy hauler? Mobile aquarium?

Are you planning on a roof raise? Insulating? So many decisions.

If you fill-out your profile with your bus specs/ location, it'll assist you in getting help quicker.
