Yeah we had insurance through progressive for a few hours when they wrote us down as a converted "Toter International Truck" but I knew they would cancel it so I just called right back and got all the money back. I'm hoping Jolly Roger's Nationwide will help. Called yesterday and am waiting for a callback.

Just got insurance in NC from Farm Bureau. No one at Allstate, Nationwide, National General, or anywhere else we called would do it. Farm Bureau spoke straight to the underwriters and was very transparent about it being a school bus conversion. They had to get it "seated" which apparently helps get insurance in high risk situations. It's insured as an RV, and our title says "House Car." $222 a year for 50/100/50 liability.

Hi from your area

Hi! I'm in Johnston County, NC (not too far from Raleigh) and am just starting my quest for a skoolie to live in full-time.

Did you have any trouble finding a place to keep your bus while you were working on it and/or living in it?

My parents happen to have 20 acres and an airplane hangar, so I got to work/live on the bus rent free while I was building.

That sounds like every bus builders fantasy situation! Cool!

Awesome! Wish I had that set-up. My first concern is where I can work on and live in a bus without having to buy land. Or if I do have to buy land, that there won't be restrictions against skoolies!

Thank you for your welcome!

I moved here from WNC (Haywood County) just last year to be closer to my daughter's family. I miss the mountains!

Have you had any problems finding a place to keep your skoolie in the Asheville area?

I haven't bought one yet. Still on the hunt. But I'm going to store it at my storage unit down the street from me.
