Where do you park your skoolie?

Where do you park your skoolie?

What's the location?
Do you have it at your house?
You have extra space for another skoolie? (help someone out)
Do you rent a spot or land?
Did you buy land?
What is size of area?
Hookups? Power, water, sewer, and wifi or phone?
How much do you pay for it?
Are you allowed to convert school bus to skoolie on property?
Do you know of a place that is open to a skoolie bus?
Are you looking for place for you skoolie?

There are people on forum who are looking for place to park their skoolie. Hoping this helps.

FYI - I am looking for a place to rent or buy to convert a skoolie. I'm open to a temporary new location for conversion.

Thank you in advance!

So not locked storage, but under carport for lack of a better term? Roof raise would be tough!

Thanks Christopher

I found someone who rented me space on her property. I've got electricity, but no water (yet). It ain't covered, but it is quiet.

I'm able to store buses on a friend's property. Hope to have my own land outside town when we finally sell the house.

Yeah it’s a gated lot but I’m guessing they might say something about roof raisexinless you made sure to clean up each day. I swapped 2 transmissions and don’t many other repairs there but I never leave a mess I may leave a jack under a bus or such but I clean up all my tools and materials and put them inside the bus or take them home. So if you pulled out your seats and took out the windows you couldn’t just leave them scattered about

so far

My bus and nearly all the stuff for the project have been stored nearly free of cost, unless the cost of the bits and pieces is included.

everything, except the lights, the wide fenders, and a bit of wiring harness at at the shop with the bus, the engine donor truck and the chassis donor truck. So far at no cost to me.

Silence is golden. I bet it's beautiful there.
