WELCOME to the BEST Skoolie forum on the WWW.

She looks like she is in pretty good shape your bus. And make sure you tell your buddies to follow the posted rules.

Re: Crazy Man Platt bus

Homwners' Associations - A friend of mine from about 20 years ago once owned a house in a development in Florida where the rules were you had to keep your garage door closed. He would drive around with his remote to see how many doors were on the same code as his, and then leave them open. There was no way he could mess with the rule you had to leave your porch light off, though.

Re: Crazy Man Platt bus

sorry to hear about your job.

i know what ya mean about buses being like a disease! I've completed 4 buses now. Sold my last one a month or two ago. I'm working feverishly trying to finish the new hosue that i bought, i have approximately zero free time or money ,and i'm contemplating buying a new bus. I want a short bus this time...preferably with a cummins 5.9.

Re: Crazy Man Platt bus


Hmmmmmmm....
When you buy a house, you sign a contract. A legally binding contract, enforcable in court. Part of that contract is any Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions that are recorded with the deed of title. This stuff is Part Of Your House, just as sure as the planks and bricks. So you read the CC&Rs, and if you don't agree with everything there, you don't buy that house. Pretty straight forward, really. Civilized.

In your case, you might want to check the CC&Rs for a ban on outdoor auto repair. Very common. And no, I doubt the court would agree that the bus is not an auto, and that you are building, not repairing.

Hey... I'm not a jerk -- some of you guys know that. I just want you to understand what's going on, before you get in too much trouble. If the CC&Rs say that the HA can fine you, then this could get very expensive.

All my best,

Re: Crazy Man Platt bus

You say there is a number of guys at work that think the bus is cool. Do any of them live in a place where you could store it? Tell them they can use it if they provide free storage and maybe get a little free labor out of them as well.

Sure glad I don't have a HOA.

Actually, I do. It's called a wife! Maybe someday I'll get her to change the bylaws and let me get a skoolie!

First I got about 12000 other projects around the house to finish.

Re: Crazy Man Platt bus

you make me wax nostalgic. When I bought my bus about 26 years ago I had to evict the current tenants as I removed seats. Wasps of ever kind. While I didn't enjoy being stung after a few times it didn't seem to hurt so bad. But getting those seats out changed its personality and gave me a good feeling. Only a Skoolie would understand. Good job and carry on.
