Default Schoolie Paint Job...

Has anyone ever thought about painting up a Wanderlodge in traditional school bus colors? I think it would make for a very cool looking bus and a fun project to do. Opinions?

It would be cool but it would also be illegal in some states. Indiana will not allow registration of a former skoolie for private use without it being repainted some other color.

No way! Everytime you stop, all the school kids will try to load.

But maybe you would be able to double park, without getting a parking ticket.

The gas station employees today thought I was the blood donation bus. I thought those buses were white?
