Favorite Skoolie?

What is your favorite Skoolie build and why?

Bonus points, if they have a tour video

There are so many good builds I can't pick a favorite. Here are just a few of the great builds on the site.

No particular build, but I like the ones that have lots of thoughtful touches, but avoid gimmicks and flashy stuff. I like a quality paint job with some bodywork done.
For me points get deducted if there's an instagram handle or some sort of self made branding. Also I love "conversion blue" but its way too common now.
Just my 2 cents.

I love their folding table

This folding deck is a neat idea and I like it more than a roof top deck. Just don’t know if I would get much use out of it

These bunk beds with the storage underneath is a good use of space, especially with kids

I would also deduct points if every picture of the bus has the builder(s) in it. Nobody really seems to do that here, which is nice.

We're the least narcissistic skoolie crowd in all the land.

Thinking about my bus floor plan, made me review all the bus builds I love, and different features, unique ideas, which led me to this post about favorite bus builds.


There is one bus build I always go back to...it is just an image of the bus interior, but it's simplicity brings out a sense of home and comfort almost like being out at the camp (the old family homestead), as a child.

Haven't seen them all, so I can only speak for what I've seen. Broccoli Bus is nice, but reprobate is my personal favorite. Very nice build. Like a five-star hotel inside.
