I would like to live in it while I am doing the work but need a place that has showers and laundry and such because the plumbing is one of the main things I need to do. I also need internet access. I am in bay area of California and need the place to be not to far away, maybe southern Cal.? I don't want to go to Arizona or any place that far away. Preferably a place without much rain as I need to do some exterior cleaning, caulking. I will also be posting many times in the work related area here. Thanks for your help!
There is a really interesting
looking "park" somewhere between the bay area and the stockton area on one of those little roads going off the interstate... I think the name is "The Orchard". Actually it was mostly filled with older (70's models) from working folks. I don't know that they "allow" you to work on your trailer there, but I did see one trailer with a washing machine tied to the rear bumper and I am sure the folks did their laundry in it.
You might be able to stay there... but it is cold and foggy in the winter and hotter than hades in the summer...
I would post a query on Craigslist saying you are looking for a place to repair your coach for a month or two. See if someone will rent you a space?? Sometimes old airports have empty hangers and you can rent one on a month to month basis. Airports usually have bathrooms, but not so sure about the laundry or internet...but I bet a wireless might work.
Let us know if you find a solution and how you came up with it. Others are often in the same "boat". Good luck.
