Skoolie Not Allowed in my Neighborhood


New Member
Hi, I just found out today that I am not able to park a school bus in my neighborhood. My subdivision is not zoned for it which is considered a "commercial vehicle". This is devastating news that I never heard of before. Has anyone had this problem? I had my mind set on buying a school bus and converting it into a home. I'm now thinking of a Plan B. I would possibly have to rent a space to park it - which would be money I could put in the conversion. Any comments are appreciated.

Depending on the state you live in once all the seats are removed you should be able to get it registered as a recreational vehicle. At that point it is no longer considered a commercial vehicle and the law no longer applies. Before spending a bunch of money on a separate parking location, contract your DMV and ask them what the law is concerning RV parking in your neighborhood.
