Most private campgrounds have limitations some even prohibit Skoolies. Each National Park is different and the size limitation is based on Spaces they have. I think I read somewhere that about 95% of national parks can accommodate a 40 ft camper. And some of the more limited ones only up to 30 ft. If you have a park in mind it wouldn't be a bad idea to call first because most of them are limited to how many spaces they can fit a large camper, even if they say they can accommodate up to a 40-footer

Private campground can go to hell. Wait, private campgrounds are hell. Can you go to hell when you are hell???

I plan on visiting ALL the National Parks (and more). Eventually I'd like to hit all the parks, seashores, trails, monuments, battlefields, etc.

After finishing the Nationals, I'd go on a one state park per state tour. There's also the Pan-American Hwy on the bucket list. I'll run out of bucket long before running out of list.

I like your Floorplan. I'm also going to cut out that center aisle thing and have a zigzag kind of plan. This leaves more privacy in the back.
How long is your bus? That's alot of windows.

Had to jump in on this one. In the early planning stages for a Thomas or Blue-Bird conversion. No idea when I can pick up a bus but wanted to work on SOMETHING, so I created a floor plan.

Let me know if you have any suggestions or advice.
The arched door in front, won't there need to be a gap about it so the door is short enough to slide into the partition Walls?
