Hey, wait. Under your rules I might not be able to qualify for my own schoolie park. I think a conversion is hooking up internet and satellite tv, a barrel of spring water, an apartment size fridge, a few file cabinets and a desk. I'm pretty much all electric if I'm someplace I can plug in, otherwise I'm on propane. My conversion is so light that in about 45 minutes this could actually be a school bus again. When I'm out in the woods I like to be able to see 360* around me. I was clearly seeing the error of my ways for leaving all this glass while it was darn cold outside, but since I've become complacent about covering windows again. I'm happy I got that top emergency hatch It stop dripping all the time. So yeah, it's converted. Registered as a van because it is.
If I go to Alaska you can bet I'll insulate the begebees out of this thing first.

Nope. You'd fit in nicely, but you'd have to bring your own satellite dishes. We'll provide a water source (near the Yellowstone River) and electricity. We'll arrange for delivery of propane.

That sounds pretty. You wouldn't happen to be in the cauldera of that super volcano, would you?
For about a grand you can have a mobile dish system that automatically finds the satellite. If you want to watch tv while you're driving you'll have to get the more expensive system, plus you'll need cruse control. Just put it on cruise then go in back and make coffee.

You know, all you guys with your fancy pants solar panels are going to look pretty silly when I attach a water wheel to the side of my bus.

Yeah, GovLiquidation scares me sometimes to see the things the government is getting rid of, but there are some really great deals on the other hand.

There is a 2008 8.3l Navistar engine for sale in Herlong, CA. Sounds like an engine someone needs. Event ID 14519 Lot Number 8935

And for motor park discrimination consider this. You can back a bus into the brush, but try doing that with a motor home without poking the skin full of holes.
