    I wonder what it would be like to live in an RV. Or buy an old schoolbus and turn it into an RV.

    i'm actually considering buying a nice class a motorhome (or class c, or 5th wheel, not really decided on that part yet either) and become a full-time rv'er, as it seems fun (there's this thing called boondocking which sounds really fun) and the average house price here in California is $430K, while a nice motorhome (even brand new) will go for around $100K ($80K if class c)

    I'm not really that into it, but this is what the Motorhome my grandmother has looks like. Got a big block in it I'm pretty sure.
    Here's what it looked like as of March (ish) of this year. Nothing has changed accept the fake grass mat is now wadded up under the bumper.
    Oh and I accidentally broke off the little orange turn signal thing that sticks off on the passenger side. It's still hanging there by the wires.

    For those wondering the difference between a class a, class c, and class b motorhome:

    Class B: A Class B motorhome is built using a cargo or camper van as the base. They are often called “conversion vans” or “camper vans.” However, it has a raised roof and is much larger than a typical van; most are built with a high enough roof to allow its occupants to stand up inside.

    Class C:
    Class C motorhomes usually use a van or truck chassis built specifically for motorhome use, with an attached cab. They provide many of the luxury amenities of the more extravagant Class A motorhomes, but are less expensive. They provide a midpoint between the very stripped-down Class B motorhome family and Class A luxury motor coaches.

    Class A:
    The Class A motorhome is the most luxurious classification of RV available. They are built on heavy-duty frames like a commercial truck or bus chassis. Some, like the King Aire, are built on a customized chassis built specifically for its design. They are equipped for vacations or short trips, but they are also commonly used by full-time RVers.

    and a website for more detail:

    Why not haul a complete house with you.

    (imported from here)

    It is not a house being transported, its a house on wheels.

    stuff not being tied down and all that, plus the great thing about motorhomes is that your passenger's can go to the bathroom anytime while your driving, unlike something like that, at which point you'd have to pull over, or find a rest stop

    idk about you, but i'd personally find them being able to do it as your driving far better then having to pull over
