    That’s the great part about this area is that it’s mostly all shore dives.

    Well, the good thing is that you can live in the vehicle under a Interstate overpass.

    Lots of places require various permits to operate any type of mobile business. The beaches near me, for example, require one. Even if you're a guy on the corner in a clown suit or a guitar player taking tips. Make sure you research that to avoid getting screwed. Roach coaches require different permits. Some from the state, some to operate in a specific location.

    it was tried there (Ontario) and it made one person a very wealthy person in the 80's. He had a 18 wheeler class/shop/dive locker travelling Ontario in the summer offering dive lessons and an advance party as well.
