i think i would have bought a yellow school bus with all the school bus stuff still on it, tint the windows as black as you can, then you can park anywhere incognito, as long as you didn't have a window unit hanging out of the windows or something that obvious, its funny to me how people seem to just ignore certain vehicles, school buses and garbage trucks no one seems to pay them any attention.

Hey,

Made some more progress over the last few days, although most time was spent standing around, pointing and figuring out how to do everything…

We have managed to recycle a bunch of old materials from our friends garage which has been great. The walls for the bathroom/storage cupboard are now in and we’ve boxed one of the wheel arches.





Sofa structures are now almost complete too..



City parking has been one of our main concerns, we plan to try and find as many free places as possible otherwise it will have to be RV parks as close as we can get to the centre. We have liberty harbor RV park in New York booked as our first destination (anyone been there?) but have also been using http://www.campendium.com to find a lot of free overnight parking. Any other tips apart from that?
We are also little concerned with how we might be received in RV parks when turning up in a bus conversion, will some parks refuse entry if not a proper motorhome?

And also cheers for all the invites! We’d love to meet up with some fellow skoolies on our way round We’ll give you a shout when in those areas!

The use of the old doors is simply brilliant...and gorgeous too.

Reuse, recycle, repurpose!

This sounds like an epic adventure! How long do you have to travel? I think you'll be surprised how long it takes to drive across the country.

Good luck and safe travels! :beer:
