This is cheating but...

Post by rocr7 » Mon May 07, 2012 5:29 pm

OK, I bought my B190 at the beginning of 2011 and have been living in it and on the road since then. I swear I'm this close to give the keys to my mini storage to my kid and telling him he can have the stuff before I'm dead. I seriously love this lifestyle and doubt I will give it up anytime soon.

So... a little trick I learned is this. I made a modest sized sign on a piece of cardboard that says "broke down, help is on the way" and I hang it on the side of my B190 whenever I want to spend the night at some cool spot where one is not suppose to do so. Beach fronts, fire roads, wineries, you name it, and no one has bothered me yet. :)

I did something similar a couple days ago, I did not have card board so I just lifted and left open the engine hood :) worked swimmingly :D
