    I would require the roof to be lifted. I would not want to be in a place where I could not stand up straight. Might be a good way to avoid property taxes. I wonder if it would require city approval if I bought a lot/land and put a bus on it. Maybe more than one bus. and connect them together. I would want plumbing as well. That would probably require permits. I guess I could use solar for power.

    Or maybe one bus for the living room, one for the kitchen/eating area/pantry, one for the bathroom/closet, and one for the bedroom. 4 buses connected together. icon_smile.gif

    Either the students riding on these buses will arrive at School depressed or become 'Hippies' in later years. I would rather beg Mom, to take me to School instead.

    Same rules would apply as for living in RVs. I know in my town it's illegal (even in the backyard of a real house). We had an elderly couple living near us in a large travel trailer (still small enough to be towed by a full-sized pick up truck) for years. They were "grandfathered in" but after they left nobody else could do that. But I'm sure there are places where you can.

    Me, I'd like to get a late model 727 Super 27, gut its interior, and set it up as a luxury jet, but with "certain combat capabilities" for when times get tough. icon_cool.gif

    My cousin lived in one for a couple of years with her boyfriend and a big dog. Even with a propane conversion, it cost a lot of money to travel anywhere. Or they couldn't go very far on a tank. And if they used the bathroom, they had to drive it every day to dump the holding tank. Mostly they camped out illegally in our back pasture and ran the drain hose down into a gully. Had a wood stove in it that they had to keep blazing all night, all winter because there was no way to really insulate the bus effectively.
