Skoolie newb. Patience required. Victoria, BC
Myself, my lady friend and our two hounds are moving to BC on a IEC holiday visa from the UK.
Our dream aim is to convert a skoolie that we can live in full time and move around seasonally to cater to our areas of employment (summer surf, winter board). I was hoping to wrack the brains of seasoned 'skoolies' and hopefully get a crash course of information to make our transition into bus living as seamless as possible.
I will be doing the work myself and it would be a dream come true (I restored a 64 vw splitbus in the UK and enjoyed that immensely) to convert a bus to a rolling home. Our only reservations relate to BC legalities regarding bus conversions, insurance and air break registration.
I'm looking to befriend someone with knowledge of Skoolie-ing in the BC area/ has gone through this stuff in the BC area that would happily shower me with knowledge. I would be buying the beers when we get over the pond as a thank you.
Looking forward to chatting with you all soon
