Newbie - Best Gatherings/Shows
 
So, I've already found people in this community to be super helpful, and I'm slowly getting educated topic by topic. But, I think that going to one of these actual gatherings of people who've done conversions would be an excellent use of time to further my education.

The problem is, there seems to be a TON of them.

So, I'm looking for specific recommendations as the the largest/best/most useful of the various shows. I'm pretty much retired, so location and time of year aren't a major concern.

Thanks

There's a "swarm" in FL once a year.
Its nice cause its not a sales event. No one's selling or advertising. Its not a car show, just a casual weekend get-together.

ok, I found this site: https://vacayvans.com/your-complete-...-house-events/

They show a "swarm" in Florida that was in February, last year? The site link is dead, but I found a fb page. I assume they don't mind someone like me, kind of lurking and brain picking? I can bring snacks :)

Thanks

I think a lot of the various Tiny Home shows have skoolies. There's also Skooliepalooza that's held in Quartzite, AZ every January. Supposedly it gets bigger every year (this should be the 4th year).
FWIW I think it's a great idea to walk around in some bus conversions so you get a sense of space and can chat with the owners and pick their brains about the build process, etc.
