doing this is fine if you never plan to stay in any half descent rv park while on vacation. since the vehicle hasn't had its equipment like plumbing or electrical certified if the propane tanks decide to explode the rv park will be screwed also so they won't let you in. oh and you better live somewhere that has local authorities that don't give a shiate about it being your permanent residence. oh and if you have school aged kids thats another flag maybe if you try to get them in a public school. hell, even if you made it just as a goof project some communities wouldn't want to even see some of those eyesores parked in a backyard.

After driving it across the country to relocate to TX, Weaver then converted it so that it runs on vegetable oil to help reduce its carbon footprint. He now keeps it parked in a friend's backyard.

His friend must really love him.

There's an interesting correlation I've noticed between the kinds of people who are into this sort of "simple living", "reducing my footprint" stuff - and getting food stamps. It's not the biggest problem society faces, but it leaves me unimpressed when some dude decides he's going to save humanity by burning vegetable oil and living inefficiently in an old school bus.

The best I've ever seen was an article about an old ferry, the guy bought it dirt cheap and completely fixed it.

He made into a multiple rooms house boat, with full office (a very nice library-type look), a folding ramp for the car for when he dock, as yes, it was fully working as a boat, not just stationary.

I wish I could find it again.

Came here to say that. Unicat is a manufacturer of high-end off-road RVs. Not "garbage trucks".

That's why I won't own in a HOA. No one infringes upon my freedoms or my summer house made from old car batteries.

Interesting but I wonder if the author is aware that there is an entire industry that produces [evil_air_quotes]Recreational Vehicles[/evil_air_quotes] which are very similar.
