Looking for plans/designs

Hi, I'm new to the skoolie life. I'm looking for existing designs/plans that I can purchase and start my DIY. I would want plumbing, electrical, and everything else.

Any recommendations?

Thanks,

Jack

Welcome Jack,

I have never seen detailed stock designs with the level of detail you are asking for.

If you spend some time following the build threads you will find that every skoolie is unique and different. That is part of the reason we are all here. We like to do it "our way".

The build threads will give you plenty of ideas.

Good luck with your quest.

Welcome, Jack.

Once you have stripped the seats out, you have an absolutely blank slate. Most people put the bedroom in the back, the kitchen/bath in the middle and the living room up front. There are no set plans available simply because people play it by ear.

I made a list of all the things I had to have and all the things I wanted.. measured my bus out and took grid paper... 1 box equals 1ft and drew it out using household items and online for dimensions for things like twin mattresses. Worked well and fit most things into my grid. Plumbing and electrical schematics exist on the forums and others and in bulk. Good luck!
