Nat & Don purchased and built their first skoolie in 2018. Living in their beautiful, off-grid skoolie until November 2020, they sold that bus and bought a Mercedes Sprinter to convert. The Sprinter conversion was completed summer of 2021. Since then we have traveled over 30,000 miles adventuring and helping others transform skoolies and vans into beautiful conversions for tiny living and traveling full-time.
A couple of things that set us apart from other skoolie, box-truck, and van conversion companies is that we travel to your location and complete the build on your property or where your vehicle is located.
We are the original creators of the skoolie conversion and van conversion Starry Night Ceilings. You do not have to have a Starry Night ceiling installed into your new skoolie build or van conversion, but why wouldn’t you want one?
We live and travel full-time in a skoolie and van. We know what a full-time nomad needs and wants to live comfortably and efficiently in a tiny house on wheels. We use that knowledge and experience to consult you while planning your new skoolie build and van conversion.
We make a great team!
