Have you searched the internet far and wide for a start to finish guide on converting a school bus? Perhaps you’ve googled away trying to find a step-by-step tutorial for school bus conversion. Either way, you’ve finally found what you’ve been looking for. I’m pleased to introduce to you THE go-to guide for completing your own basic bus conversion. The Step-By-Step School Bus Conversion course is here!
I can remember breaking out in cold sweats, waking up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding. My head was spinning. Foggy. There were so many thoughts, questions, and worries. But there was also a thrill. That feeling you get at top of the first roller coaster drop. Freaking out and exhilarated at the same time. Like you want to puke or dance, but can’t do either because you’re frozen. Stuck in the overwhelm. All because a school bus was parked in my driveway.
What’s the Big Deal?
Converting a school bus into a home on wheels is not a task for the faint of heart. There are numerous challenges and uncertainties along the way. The first is deciding that the Skoolie route is the best one for you. Once you’ve made that determination, the next big question is ‘How am I going to do this?” Is that ever a loaded question! So, you head to the search engines, Pinterest, and Youtube. There are so many options and opinions. But the questions keep mounting.
And it’s not just the ‘how’ that’s driving you crazy. It’s the self-doubt, wondering if you are even qualified or capable of doing what needs to be done. I mean, it does sound kind of nuts, doesn’t it? There are probably a few of your friends, family, or coworkers who think you’ve lost your mind. So you start to wonder if maybe they’re right. Believe me when I tell you, they are NOT!
What Can I Do About It?
Even if you are not a skilled carpenter or plumber by trade, you CAN convert your own school bus. The only real skills you need to bring to the table are common sense and a willingness to learn. You don’t have to keep asking ‘how’ and ‘if’ anymore. We’ve broken down each stage of the conversion process into bite-size, easy to follow tutorials and videos into an online course. With 9 modules released over the course of 9 weeks, the Step-By-Step School Bus Conversion course takes you from purchasing your bus to your first Skoolie adventure. Each module provides everything you need to know, including tools and materials, to complete your own basic bus conversion.
The Nine Modules Are:
- Buy the Right Bus
- Gut Your Bus
- Solid Foundation
- Layout and Floor Plan
- Insulating, A/C, and Heat
- Walls, Storage, Seating, and Sleeping
Accountability and Support
In addition to the course material, you will have access to a private Facebook group consisting of other course students. The support and encouragement of other Skoolie converters will help keep you focused and moving forward toward your goals. You will have a place to go to vent your frustrations, ask your questions and get one-on-one help from not just your peers, but also from Jeff and I. We will be holding office hours weekly to help you with each module’s content should you need it. We want you to celebrate each victory with folks who can appreciate all the work you’ve done and cheer you on.
Included with a course purchase are two printable products. The first, Bus Binder, is a collection of worksheets for you to fill out and keep in a binder on your bus. It will include all of the pertinent information you MUST have, such as mechanical specs, materials, and more. The Portable Instruction Guide is a printable manual that you can take into your bus as you work through your conversion. Each sheet takes a specific conversion project and gives you step-by-step photo and text instructions. These are great for hanging up to your bus wall with a magnet and use as a reference as you work. These resources combined are valued at $50, but we are including them with this course for FREE!

There’s no need for you to reinvent the wheel when we have already taken the financial hit for you. Not to mention the time and confidence that were lost along the way. Your dream can be a reality!
