Parking While Converting

Hello everyone!

I have to move my bus from where it is currently parked ASAP and am having trouble finding a place to park it while I work on it. I am in SouthWest Idaho (Boise area) and have been looking on craigslist for places to park with no luck. The RV storage facilities that aren't $100+/month are all full and the private land owners I have talked to are not willing to allow me to work on the bus-even the inside (they don't want me coming to visit the bus frequently).

Any tips on TYPES of places to look? (churches, stores, etc?) It doesn't have to be Idaho specific, I am just looking for ideas for the type of locations I should reach out to that you have had luck with.
Thank you SO much in advance!

A fellow skoolie here went "door to door " in a commercial / industrial area and asked the business owners. I don't know how many he asked but he found one and was parked for three months.

I think that he paid closer to $150/month with power.

Good luck.

BTW: I am about 60 miles West of Lewiston.

I live IN Boise, but am looking for storage outside of Boise as well (within reasonable driving distance though- I don't want my bus to be way over in Eastern Idaho or anything- haha)
