Tailgaters….
Take their buses to Sporting Events, Concerts etc. and hang out in the parking lots of these venues.
Very seldom are they designed for a fulltimers lifestyle ….mostly they’re ‘party buses’ and have very few amenities.

Towing a Toad….
A ‘Toad’ is the car , van or truck you tow behind a School bus or RV. Folks do this so they can park the big rig somewhere…and drive around town or whatever in their ‘Toads’…

I'd just like to throw in a few things, if you want to see what the typical tailgator bus looks like go here:

Also I'd like to throw in a little history I beleive the term "toad" came from WWII when the american army refered to the artillary they pulled behind their jeeps as a "towed".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's a nice little story anyways.

Hey guys, thank you very much for the info. Steve I have gone to the other postings on your site and it has cleared things up for me. When I decide on a particular school bus I will let you, and the good people here at the site know.

I am "not " the most computer literate person you have met but I will do my best to send pictures and a few brief words as to how the conversion is going to go. There is a great deal of information on your site which will help me a lot.Thanks again all.
