Skoolie – North America – Emilie Becker
Hey I’m Emilie! I finished converting my skoolie in august 2023 and have been enjoying the fruits of my labor! I am a traveling elopement photographer and have been to a lot of places around the world. I built my skoolie so I could have a home base and I have always dreamed of shipping it to other continents and finding this site has given me hope of enjoying other places without having to that right away! I’m currently a 30 year old solo female traveler and I’d love to travel New Zealand in a van as well as Australia and Europe!

My skoolie is a 2010 Chevy 6 window short bus. It has 1000 watts of solar and 800 amp hours of battery. It has a 10 gallon hot water heater and a shower that can be used as an indoor or an outdoor shower as well as a compost toilet. The bed is in between the size of a queen and a king and super comfy! The couch is a convertible couch, dinette, and guest bed! The fridge is a side by side fridge and freezer so tons of space and I should be putting a diesel heater in this winter but as of right now the propane oven range has been my heat source and has worked excellently!
The main rule would be no smoking in the bus and to make sure to use the evac dan when cooking so it does not make it stinky. Nobody likes a stinky home! I would also ask anyone staying to make sure my plants get watered once during the week! 🙂 some off roading is fine and often necessary but she’s not a 4x4 and can’t go crazy using your best judgement on what you feel the rig can handle and to not push the limits as it is my home and would hope someone would respect it as I would their home!
