congrats!

Congrats on the bus project. Looks like quite a tribe. We've owned ours since before we had kids and made many,many memories along the way for all of us. Enjoy the journey! Get creative... bunks and fold down/up beds is probably the way to go for your size family. Between our fold down queen, bunk on the side and conversion table to double we can sleep 6 - though I need to rebuild the bunks to make them longer as my two little kids aren't anymore! Have fun with it! Sturgy

Isn't it sad how some peolple can't mind their own business and have to worry about what their neighbor does. I'm a little surprised that I havn't seen any nasty city letters lately. I have a 25 foot still yellow bus parked on the driveway and every weeknight I park a 33 foot white bus here. And can't forget the large patches of grass that I never mowed down this year either, and the trailers in the backyard. We have gotten these letters before when the only thing here was a 26 foot white bus. With the white buses I just simply reply back to them saying it is owned by a nonprofit organization and isnot for commercial use and it even has tax exempt plates on it.

And it seems if someone sees something they don't like they write up some new ordinance against it and try to make the person comply to the new ordinance. I read the citys ordinance before and it did state that nonprofit vehicles were exempt from the restriction.

Check the ordinance and see what it says about recreational vehicles. If a person can park a $300,000 diesel rear pusher with RV plates, you can park your bus too provided it has the correct plates. They might not like it, but the law is the law

The problem he runs into is that it's not finished. Most cities have ordinances against having vehicles in any state of salvage. I agree that if you're in the process and actively working on it people should mind their own business. It would be a different story if you had a junk yard style yard with numerous vehicles torn apart or the bus was like that for years, but you have been working hard on it. Try the RV cover and keep it that way while working on it. Good luck.

Where I live, you can't have any kind of RV in your driveway for more than 24 hours. I have a 2005 model travel trailer and if I have it in my driveway more than 24 hours, the crazy neighbor lady way down the street calls the cops. You're also not supposed to do major maintenance on vehicles. I was changing a head gasket under my carport. It took me all day, but she called the cops on me for that too. I hate people who can't mind their own business either. And if they have a problem with me, they just call the cops instead of confronting me about it. I'm pretty nice and if somebody has a problem with something I'm doing and is nice about it, I'll usually do what I can to make them happy. So when I get my bus, I'm going to have that baby in my driveway for 23 hours and 59 minutes, drive it around for a while and park it for the next 23 hours! Matt

RV's are allowed in my city too but they must have rv plates. This might be one reason no nasty city letters came yet. I took my old RT plate from the old trailer and put it on the back of the bus. Not exactly legal but it looks good to those that don't know.

I'm glad I'm a rural boy Hehe...you know RV plates are REALLY easy to get for a bus in Minnesota, right Wmah? It took me only half an hour to fill out the paperwork for a change of tax base class AND a change of title type...and that was after screwing up once. Best part is they don't inspect here (mine was done anyway).

I just need to get in there to get plates and see if they will do it with out an inspection. I'm right in the 7 county metro so it is hard to say if they will want an inspection. My stickers are due next month on the truck so I figure that will be a good time to go in.
