We want to go full time but stay local for kids school and work...at least for a couple years. We want to sell the house. Too many burdens right now and we just need to lesson the financial load.

I called around for a place to stay this last weekend (spring break in FL) as it was my wife's birthday and we had 3 days off together (almost never happens). One place that had space and sounded like fun was Blue Cypress Park. WWW.IRCGOV.COM - Indian River County Board of County Commissioners - Public Works - Parks Maintenance Division - Inland Parks - Blue Cypress Park
I called and all went well until she asked what we had. I told her a converted bus. She told someone in the office and then asked the length. I told her 34' and she said there was no place in the park that could handle that size.
Funny how the tone changed when I told her what we had. It made me think of the song about the guy that tucked his hair up into his hat and applied for the job where the sign said "hippies need not apply".
Maybe we should combine funds and open a couple places called "Skoolie Campgrounds".

I'm working with some local "hippies" to hopefully have a bus-friendly retreat available for a modest fee in the next year or two. We currently have one skoolie parked there. Working with the owners to see about doing some more stuff there.
Its out in Paisley, Fl.

I've mostly been concerned with finding privately owned places to park. I bought a couple lots to ensure I had somewhere local to legally stay.

Craigslist may also be a tool in helping you to find bus friendly long term living arrangements.

Having REAL friends who are cool is a big plus.
I have several who have been very clear that parking at their place is ok.

Best of luck to you. Keep looking around. Doing all your homework is definitely a smart thing.

I almost bought an RV campground near Helen GA about 10 years ago. Now I'm wishing I had gone through with the deal. "Skoolies and Two Wheel Only" STWO.

I think we all wish you had done that deal. I know Helen GA. Some paint salesman got a good commission on the dark red paint for that town.
Its a great location to stay since there are so many great places within 1/2 day driving distance.

Consider Dancing Rabbit if you are ever in the area of Rutledge MO.
I have been following them for many years and can't wait to get in a visit!

Dat's where I live, only the land I bought isn't as easy to get to with a 40 foot bus, and impossible with a stick and staple RV.

Perfect!! Its not supposed to be easy to get to. If it was, it would be overrun. Enjoy the solitude, it would be worse!

Don't forget that alot of older parks were not designed with modern 30'+ rv

you can safely stick your rear over the pavement, all parks say stay on pavement, and conventional rv's don't have clearance to stick over curbs and such

Google maps is your friend, we always check out new campsites with it

and some places are just to narrow escpecially with weekend drivers

I have a 25' ResidentialVehicle

that is usable space inside, it has come up one time when they said that's only 25 foot? I smiled and said "yes"

they "okay, looks bigger"

no problems

my tape measure is always broken

Privet land is where it's at.

I don't and wont even bother trying to get into RV parks. They are retarded expensive, crowded, and I don't like the plastic fake people.

Here I can find places to park for $100 a month without hookups. I don't need hookups.

If you want true freedom, you need to make and find your own water, electricity, and deal with your own wastes.
