I noticed that too. BUT it lead me to some YouTube vids, that I had not seen, so I consider it a win.

I pulled the link from my account earlier so it was the internal one for me to make changes.

Registered it in VT today. $240 between tax, reg, and title fee.

Time to get working on it! After Tuesday because I'm away this weekend...

Short vacation check-in. Rented a van to stay in.

Its a big white Ford Transit. Overall not bad, nicer than my skoolie on the highway and easier to park (midtown Atlanta) I'm not sold on it completely even with a short bus the amount of space I have is pretty great.

Would be best for some weekend trips but the skoolie is better for a longer living arrangement.

One of the big reasons people are gravitating toward van conversions for full timing is that they can be in cognitive vs an RV or a school bus, white cargo vans don't look out of place parked anywhere.. they are everywhere.. for the person trying to do the ultra minimalist nomad lifestyle they like cargo vans..

I agree. Nobody notices a white van. They're used primarily commercially everywhere.

People don't notice yellow school buses that much either, but after we paint them it seems that we qualify as hippies in most people's eyes. There's always parking problems. It is nice to take your living room with you everywhere you go, but there's a cost that's financial and limiting in where you can park.

yellow school busses arent noticed when they are out driving around... but they are if they are out of place.. ie a yellow school bus fully marked sitting in a shopping center parking lot at 3am is out of place..

at 2PM on a tuesday nah no one noticves a yellow school bus...

So true. An out of place yellow school bus does raise eyebrows.
