Skoolie books for starting your build can be very helpful tools to get you going. But, there are many different books out there. I will review two books in this blog. One is a step by step guide on building your Skoolie. The second is a way to help monetize your build by using sponsors. Both will help you from starting to hitting the road in your Skoolie.
The first book is DIY Skoolie Guide: A Step-By-Step Bus Conversion Textbook.
This book contains all the knowledge you need for a basic School Bus Conversion to create your Skoolie. Below is a snippet of the introduction:
“Do you have what it takes to convert your own bus into the living space of your dreams? If so, this book is written for you—the ambitious DIY dreamer.

The second book is called Sponsors for Nomads.
The title explains it all and can be very handy to help you make money on the road. This is a Kindle book, so you do need some kind of electronic device that can download Amazon Kindle.
