What do you do for transport when you don't want to drive your bus?

I'm planning on getting a bus and getting to work on a conversion as soon as possible but I was wondering what you guys do for transportation, since I'll be living in campgrounds it'll be pretty important to be able to move without the bus.

I'm personally thinking about a dualsport in a garage on the back of the bus so I can easily ride gravel and dirt roads as well as in town so I'd love to know what you do as well as how you designed it

I am fortunate to have a place to park my truck and bike while i work on the bus.
I have a trailer i can put the bike on when i travel, and i may use that or i may just pull it up into the rear and head on my way. Time will tell which is most useful.

I had a Geo tracker 1995 . Drove it for years without a hickup. Once the clutch cable broke, i installed a new one in the rain. Could drive over ANYTHING in a snow storm it was incredible.

We tow a Morris minor woody wagon behind the bus. I put an '89 Tracker 4 X 4 under the MM and tow it 4 down even though I have to stop every 100 miles or so to run the engine/tranny a few minutes to lube 'em up---no big deal as at my age 100 miles is break time anyway. Jack

The MM has a tent trailer so,sometimes we just travel in it.
.

Other times we just use the MM as a toad.
