Re: skoolis not welcome

A public park CANNOT turn you away if you are in a vehicle that is legal to be on the highways. That is the law. It is a publicly funded park and cannot discriminate. I have seen everything from U-haul moving vans (said U-haul on the side... these were not conversions), bread truck (still lettered) and all kinds of conversions. Down side to a public park is that you have a limit on how long you can stay. And there is price. A public park is generally cheaper by the night. A private park is cheaper once you are looking at longer stays (like monthly). Our monthly at this higher priced park is running a little over $13 per night. They are priced at the max of what we like to pay ($400/mo).

We have stayed for 3 months in a public park with out moving. This was in "off-season". I would not count on doing that. We were not paying the site rental ourselves. We also were rotating thru 3 names on the stays. Yes the head park ranger knew. He was the one who tried to check us in, as well as his 2nd in charge, as they had a volunteer who hassled us about it.

The Spanish word for "motor home" is autocaravana (feminine gender). Autobús is masculine gender. Perfect!

Oregon doesnt require an inspection.. so you could just register it there, and be fine...

No inspection req'd to go from commercial vehicle to RV? That would save alot of frustration and hurried work... I want to be on the road by May, and I am tied up with 'requirements'...

Re: skoolis not welcome

in Oregon, one just has to tell them it is a 2001 or make up the year, converted motorhome, tell them the length but don't cheat too much, and give them the $350 or so for 2 yrs of license..you must present insurance card for vehicle, so a trip to the gmac insurance site is what i have done, for my last 4 busses.

Do you have to provide an address in Oregon as well?

Re: skoolis not welcome

I don not know for sure if you have to provide an oregon address. Maybe you have to use one of your friends address to get title sent to.. I own some commercial vehicles with someone who lives in another state, and either he or i do the dmv paperwork, but we have titles sent to my address.
