This didn't seem like an idea at first....now I am seeing the benefit!

I cold get the Class B now, camp a bit in it, and then We'd see how well it works.

Wow, so many ideas.

Only thing. We will be full time...would the teenager sleeping in the "car" be frowned upon?

I was worried his teachers/School etc. would think it not appropriate living conditions.

You are the parent.... Not the teachers. Technically, your 40' DP is a "car." That said, there is a far cry from a kid sleeping in a class B Motorhome towed behind the family's "luxury motorcoach" and a kid living in a Ford Taurus.

A little off the subject...A PSU tailgater pulls a pop-up behind his DP however he converted it into a traveling bar. He removed all of the canvass and fabricated fold out bars, added an additional fridge and installed club lighting and a sound system. The interior was used to store the bar stools.

It's certainly not a solution for additional living quarters but it could make you one of more popular sites in the campground!

Let 'em frown then. They may classify your kids as "Homeless". We have a pretty large percentage of kids in our district that are classified as such but aren't what you would actually call homeless. Some are just living with their parents in the grandparents' house, some are with friends of the family.

It doesn't make any real difference. No one from the school sends DCF out or anything. The teachers likely wouldn't even have any clue that he lives in a van down by the river.....

If for some reason one of them gets snooty and condescending to you, just put them in their place and let them know that your "car" probably costs more than their house.

We did stop for fuel once and was questioned as to why we needed the TT. I told them it was for the maid!
Now that's funny right there.

That was my concern. I was a teacher until I took off to be with my daughter.

I do not want to homeschool my teenager but I also don't want him to feel bad about his living situation.

Throw an Xbox or something in the van and he'll be fine.

You never know how things can turn out. If the wrong group dislikes him they could be brutal about him living in a van (so to speak). If he doesn't have problem making friends, they will come over and hang out in his separate studio apartment.
