This is the reason I bought a bus back then rather than waiting, because I could grandfather it in with the right paperwork. Unfortunately, I'm stuck now with this bus and can't change it. Not that it's not a good bus mind you. Limits for non-grandfathered RVs are 24' long and 9' high. My bus is 36' long and over 10' high.
That is completely ridiculous. I'd petition to have that changed because it really is none of their business.

Our plan involves eventually buying land and parking the bus on it while we build a permanent structure. Looks like we'll be double checking the laws in the area we find... Not that I mind telling gov't folks to shove it, but I like minimizing hassle more lol

Re: Long term parking/ homeowner

Where I live, SoCal, f you are planning on building on your land you can get a temporary occupancy permit that's good for a few years, I believe. That's our plan, at any rate.
