We came to Canada as a group of 3 friends with the goal of converting a skoolie and travelling North America.  3yrs and a lifetime of adventuring later we can finally say she's finished and eager to hit the road again.  This bus would be perfect for a family of 3; one master queen bed and a single top bunk.
