You're good to go. You'll be limited as to where you can go in Glacier though.

It's not the states that aren't friendly it's the people

and don't forget that as long as your on the interstate system, the laws of your home state will override the state you are in (or it did, I assume it still does) and that it allows like a 1-1/2 mile radius from interstate (any road that gets federal funding) for gas/motel and food etc

just act normal and don't do stupid and you should be fine

I can't find proof of what I wrote so take it with a grain of salt, I remember when a women was pulled over here in TN 5 or 10 years ago and was ticketed and arrested for breast feeding while driving, it is illegal here in TN, the state she was from it was legal to feed your child on the road, the court threw the case out because she was on a federally funded road so her state laws overruled the TN laws, that is from memory

ya'll just have fun and be safe, no bus surfing and keep all parts inside of bus at all times and you should have fun

take pictures and post them here

I was wondering the same thing, but not so much worried about the cops but more about RV parks not allowing Skoolies. How often does that actually happen? No peace signs or anything painted on the bus.

Not that there's anything wrong with that✌

1 time I was asked for pictures of the RV so they could determine if I was GTG...I told them to pound sand

State and Fed. land they really can't say anything, private on the other hand can be a pain, I wouldn't want to stay in those kind of places anyways...drive on have fun and share picturers

If a private park has an FAQ (Frequently asked questions) page, check there; if the ground owners are smart, they'll post what they consider an RV, like the one on Lake George (NY) RV Park's FAQ page-
Quote:
6. What do you consider an RV?
Our definition of an RV (Recreational Vehicle) is a camping unit designed for road travel that is equipped with factory installed beds and at least two land-to-vehicle service connections (electric, water, or sewer) with electric being one of the two. For example, a travel trailer, fifth wheel, RV motor home, motor coach, custom private bus, folding camper/pop-up, truck (pickup) camper and camper van are considered to be an RV.

A mini-van is not considered a camper van unless it meets the above criteria. In addition, we do not allow boats with cabins and hookups, to be used as RVs. If you do not have an RV as listed above, consider staying in one of our Wilderness Lodging vacation rentals, a smart alternative to Lake George hotels.
(emphasis added)

All the state parks here in TX view a skoolie as an RV. At least that's what the head office told me, and I haven't had a problem yet.
