Yall Im scared

Hello Skoolie world! My partner and I are officially looking for a bus to buy and things are getting REAL. So many emotions involved (who knew lol)

We are located near Portland Oregon so I feel hopeful there is a community of experienced people around here to offer sage wisdom. This site seems super helpful too. Im excited to look around this site for more information and ideas. If anyone reading this is in the Oregon or Washington area let me know!

Have a good day Skoolie friends.

And yes, the forum is chock full of good stuff going back years. Use the search and see if you can find excellent forum threads on what to look for in a bus, then let us and the others know what you've found.

There is a good bus builder in that area with the Wolf Dog buses. You can find her on YouTube. She has some good videos explaining how she converts a bus and walks you through a few of them. Good luck with your search.
