Subfloor Installation | Skoolie Bus Conversion Tiny House Videos


Although I couldn't find the exact size insulation I was hoping for, skoolie subfloor installation day 1 was a raging success!

A lot of planning went into my skoolie subfloor installation. At 6'2", I'm a tall dude. I don't have much headroom in Earl. Since I chose not to raise the roof, I had to ensure my subfloor was as thin as possible while still providing at least a moderate amount of insulation. 


RV Solar Batteries | Skoolie Bus Conversion Tiny House Videos

My batteries are in place and they fit PERFECTLY! woot woot!

I purchased an 800 w solar kit from Windy Nation. Well, actually, I bought two 400 w systems. A total of 800 watts of solar panels on top and 800 am hours of battery. 

First step...will my batteries fit in the driver's side storage bay?  Yes!

Here's the solar kit I purchased. However, I made a couple upgrades to the inverter (I upgraded to 3,000 watt inverter) and the MPPT controllers.

Rust Treatment | Skoolie Bus Conversion Tiny House Videos

It's time for rust treatment! After removing Earl's plywood and rubber floors I was pretty gosh darn ecstatic to find floors with relatively minimal rust considering his age! I treated the floor using JASCO prep & prime to treat the current rust and prep the floors for a layer of Rustoleum rust inhibitor paint!
