Currently located near Phoenix, AZ

It’s hard to believe we’ve been living full-time in our bus for a little over a year now. We’ve gained a lot of experience, and after discussing what we value most in a travel rig, we’ve decided to move on to a new project. In the bus we have traveled 7500 miles, seen many states, visited 20 National Parks, and had countless adventures. We love our skoolie and it has served us so, so well. It is fully off-grid, self-contained, and turn-key. We took every care in completing our build and we hope to pass it on to a great new family who will enjoy it as much as we have!

Tow Vehicle 

We would prefer to sell/include our 2007 Honda CR-V tow vehicle “Toad” with the bus! It has been crucial for commuting around parks and makes scouting out boondocking spots a breeze. The bus easily flat tows this vehicle behind, and it is easy to hook and unhook the car. The car has a few minor dents and scratches but runs great. The interior is in great condition and the car includes front/middle/rear WeatherTech floor mats as well as a trunk “privacy shield” for contents in the trunk. The car has been upgraded to LED headlights, and has also had LED fog lights installed. We drove into Glacier National Park at 4 in the morning in this car, and visibility was NEVER an issue.
