Question corporate sponsors

Im getting ready to purchase my first bus, a shorty, and take it on a 2-3 month trip around the country. But was wondering if anyone has had any luck gaining any corporate sponsorship from any solar companies or anything to help with conversion cost. I work in the music industry and live in a tour bus most of the year, and we constantly get sponsorship for various things just for putting their name on the side of the bus. Any feedback is good feedback.

Thanks.

Most people on this site are against getting free money to build and use their skoolies

They are normally acts of love and a lifestyle, not worrying about having people pay to enjoy life

Also have you ever tried to get sponsorship? I have in the past with auto racing and it is not easy to do when they need a return of profit to cover sponsorship costs

welcome and good luck with your endeavor

Not looking for money, more like "hey we'll trade you xxxx in exchange for letting us put a wrap on the back of you bus" etc... We don't get money from corporations when traveling, they say here, take our product and advertise it for us.

I'd accept any donations or freebies.
If any corporation were dumb enough to give me free money I wouldn't turn it down.
What gets me irritated is the "e-begging" in the van dwelling, bus, and alternate living channels on YouTube.

Like you, I am totally against free money of any kind.

This x10

Unless I agreed with the company in every way and form, there is no way I would pimp their $hit.

It called pride, honor, and respect.
