for years i have been considering moving into a bus to live long term.
i would like to leave it parked in the city, preferably behind a closed gate and have access to a house/bathroom/kitchen, near public transportation. I havent found anything like that sooo
how does one secure a large vehicle in the city? partion cab and living space? gate off windows? generally i have parked my small van in nice neighborhoods and rode my bike to the location, but i know parking will be much more limited than a smaller vehicle
i hear there are lots of issues parking a large vehicle in the city and lots of unexpected tickets due to vehicle size. unexpected tows? any other common city incovniences with large vehicles, that i may be completely oblivious too?
lots of free campsites, hotsprings, weird points of interest are off the main roads. scope out a road and pick my battles? …turn around on most of them?
from what i understand, school buses and ambulances can be had in good condition for a $3000 and up at auction, and are easy to repair, 10-15mpg
00’s vans like the ford econoline are a ~$5000 and up and beat to hell, ?easy to repair? and get about 13-18mpg, hightop can be added for $3000
modern sprinter/ram/transit are 10’s of thousands of dollars, 15-20mpg and are expensive to repair
…does this sound right?
