Does size really matter?
What is everyone's opinion/ experience with the size of your skoolie/bus limiting where you can go? I'm not necessarily talking about rv parks, though I have heard some of them limit the size of vehicles they allow. I'm more concerned with getting around in general, access to state parks, boondocking, popular camping spots, etc. I will have 2 scooters and hopefully a tow vehicle to get around once I'm stationary.
I'm almost positive I have decided on a 40' diesel pusher school bus due to my budget, but plan on building it out to be a permanent, mobile home for my girlfriend and I along with our 3 year old granddaughter.
This will be our first time in any type of rv or bus. We live in St. Louis and the plan is to head from here to Maine for a bit then down the East Coast to Florida for an extended stay. From there on to explore the western 1/3 of the US and up to Alaska for a year. Eventually heading to Costa Rica indefinitely.
The way I have the floor plan planned out, I will need every bit of the 40'. I could go smaller if I were single, but Im not. But need to know how limited I will be before I dive into this instead of a live aboard sailboat. Lol
Thanks for reading.
