Am I breaking the covenant?

Thinking of buying a decent camper to tear apart to stuff into my shortie. Found a nice 1999 Rockwood with some water damage. It will be a donor for all the tanks, propane fridge/freezer, bathroom items, microwave and a bunch of other things like roof top air and awning. Seems to be the best deal I can find for all those parts. under $2k and Ill still have a shell for the kids to play with in the end.

Covenant? What covenant???

I only wish I had a donor camper for everything I need...
Everything you mentioned plus toilet, electrical control panel, microwave, and a lot more not mentioned!

Just making fun, seems like a guy isnt a true Skoolie master if he just rips apart a camper and stuffs it into my yellow can . Seems like a great idea to me. For simply the cost of the fridge and awning I get the rest for free. Heading to go get it tomorrow.

If ever there be a Skoolie code, let it read as such; "Anything goes!"

I'm gutting an old moterhome for lots of parts. Seems legit to me since I'm on a very limited budget.

I gutted the appliances out of a low mile class A motorhome.
My greatest score was the U-line ice maker! woooop-woop

No.......... According to the bylaws...
Chapter 7, article 9a paragraph 4
It reads:

Cheap is good, free is better!

Is that a full length air actuated arm for the door?

Mine's smaller and only a 3 inch throw!

Story of my life

Same here. I think my landlord, though, would have a conniption if he saw a camper being gutted at our place
