New to me Motorhome, Closer to Retirement
Check out Skoolie.net for some cool ideas. It is a pretty big project to turn one into an RV, but if you are handy and dedicated, the results can be amazing. There are an awful lot of half finished ones out there for sale, which tells me that it isn't easy.
Our bus is a shortie, 23 feet, and is all original, including the wheelchair lift (one of our crew was in a chair, so we kept it operational). The seats are also all the same miserable ones you remember from elementary school, too!
We will likely pull the lift out and replace it with a little kitchen cabinet dealie, for our next trip. We also added a big secure jobsite box bolted through the floor, for tools, parts, and gear.
And yes, they are amazingly durable. No flat tires, no overheating, no mechanical problems of any kind on ours, which is a 1991 Thomas-built bought in NC for $2500.
