Question Finding a place to put it

Hey there.

I have a bus, it's half way through it's conversion, but I'm running into a major problem. Where do I park it? I haven't though of a good way to live out of it short of buying property with money I don't have.

What are some ways you've found someone willing to take you in as a bus hippie living in their driveway? =P

Thanks for your help.

Friends or family would be the best places to inquire about first.

Hi Stevofor here, I will be in the same situation soon. My wife and I are going to travel wherever my work takes me. Luckily I work on large scale projects that requires many people. Hoping that will provide more opportunity. Good luck, keep posting to help the rest of us.

I know it's too late and at the risk of sounding obvious..."a place to put it" is one item that really needs to be worked out before buying. I've seen the unpleasant downside of not planning for it played out here a few times. Skoolies are rarely welcomed until they have on their full RV disguise and even then many cities have ordinances prohibiting or severely limiting parking.

Had to bring that up for those who are hot to buy...but haven't just yet.

Best of luck.

Might also want to consider RV storage places. I know Arizona had loads of them, but I would check them out in your state, just the same.

Here in Texas, Cube Smart is a great place to store a bus AND work on it, depending upon which one you go to and what is available from the facility.
