I just researched the rules for parking RVs or boats in my town. I'll be and not call city commission a bunch of nazi dictators....apparently unless the 'recreational vehicle' is in the back yard, it needs to be either to the side of the house, or inthe front parallel to the house and on a paved surface. No parking on grass....OR rent a space from the city....how convenient...anyway....i'll call city hall and see what's up.
I hate bureacracy -_-

I think you're very smart to figure out all that stuff now.
Lots of folks buy the bus then find out all the nitty gritty. I did all my due diligence before I bought this one.
I lost my last bus for the reasons you point out. the damned city of Leesburg, Fl.

Pembroke Pines, FL!
I mean...I see why a city might have rules like these. Some ppl just don't care, and leave basically trash on the front lawn. If everyone did that, it'd be horrible
Nice neighborhoods would turn to ghettos in no time...

I'm pretty libertarian in my views of property use/rights.

I feel the same way, but then I also have pride in my property, even when its a rental. A lot of people could care less how their place looks, as evidenced by the 16 dead cars out front. I agree you should be able to do whatever you want on your own land (so long as you're not hurting the environment or others) but if you're going to have a junkyard, at least have a few acres so its not right in people's faces.

I've also lived in POA situations where they wouldn't even let me park my snowmobile trailer in my own driveway. Stuck up people with far too much time on their hands if you ask me.

I could park my bus right next to my house on my .33 acre lot if I wanted to. But I like my neighbors better than to do that to them. Plus my grass is looking really nice after three years of care. When I bought this house the neighbor had a 30 foot rv right on the property line, but he is long gone. In florida you can park RV's lots of places.
A friend down the road lets me park on his 40 acres and even lets me run power and water all I want. Having a restroom and fridge nearby while working on the bus is great. We typically wrap up a day by grilling some good eats and then having a few beers. Good times!

Yep.... it looks more and more I'll have to fork out extra $$$ for yearly storage. On another note, wife is actually pretty excited about a bus! Thought I was going to get the laser eyes stare, but no, she actually had ideas !
