That kind of makes those sight obscuring 8' tall junk yard fences ineffective. That does explain why they send so many buses to south america. It wouldn't be that hard to exceed scrap value.
Wouldn't you like to crawl through there and extract some parts?

There's your testimonial as to the strength of school buses - they're stacked 4 and 5 high but the ones at the bottom aren't being flattened by the weight. Try that with a motorhome!

Merely being exposed to air seems to make them start to slowly crumble.

Funny you say that... My grandfather always owned an RV of one type or another, traded in for another one every ten years. He got the most use out of a Class B on a Chevy chassis, drove it to Alaska and back even. So when he traded it in, they did the deal and as he was leaving someone was on the roof of his trade-in and fell through the roof into the loft over the cab!

A junkyard I used to frequent had an interesting "backdoor" To get to the P30s you had to let them know you were there, walk about a mile around the outside down a traintrack, hop a barbed wire fence, then crawl up through the engine compartment of a P30 on top of another P30 then hop down out the back. Reverse to leave, with parts.
