Welcome Amber and family

You're in the right place. Have you got a particular bus model in mind? You'll get lots of opinions on what might work best for you. We like to ask if you've got a safe parking spot for your bus? What are you mechanical and build skills? Stuff like that. It doesn't really matter what your skill levels are because anybody can learn to build a bus.

Are you guys planning on using it like a weekend camper or are you thinking of a little home on wheels?

We will be full-time. Between my husband and I we have a good deal of the skills needed. As far as buses go we know we would like to get a school bus, 72 to 88 passenger.

Welcome! --- And the Dream Phase is a critical time. Use it to read up and determine just what it is you need and want. Lots to learn and making changes during Dream time is much cheaper and easier than it is later.

Have fun!
