Isn't that why we work so hard to make these buses capable of boondocking?

I think you'll find that many campgrounds have begun accepting skoolies. Not likely accepting the hippie buses though. There is a distinction between the two now.

This is very true, I’ve already done some calling around here in the parks and areas near me that I like to frequent, and they’ve been very inquisitive.

“We don’t normally give an answer over the phone, but being honest, as long as your bus is clean, well serviced, and ‘presentable’ then there’s no reason we wouldn’t let you stay”

Pretty much I’ve gathered the general consensus is that as long as it’s not a raggedy hippy-mobile they’re fine with busses.

Having been a Deadhead a long time, I can totally see why there are folks not wanting "school buses" in their camps.

Yeah, I'm not saying that people with shabby budget busses are bad, or even dirty people. Just the fact that most places want to keep a certain image. and sadly enough... Most travel trailers and RV's I see are run ragged by the time they're 5-10 years old and are equally chastised in the "Well what does your rig look like?" style of places.

There are a lot of selfish, loud people in the deadhead/hippie/traveler scene that give the rest of us a bad name.
