Miss Daisy: Couple’s Retirement Skoolie

This post contains affiliate links.

Shirley and A.W. wanted to do something new during retirement, so they bought a bus and built out a skoolie! Their only regret? That they didn’t do it sooner!

They have a neat L-shaped couch in the back of the bus which becomes their queen-sized bed at night, and another couch that turns into a twin for any guests. They are taking long trips when they can and staying close to home for longer stints to visit their new grandbabies.
