--off TN.gov--

Current Tennessee License Plate - This plate is available to Tennessee residents who are registering private passenger motor vehicles known as cars, station wagons, vans or pick-up trucks up to 3/4 ton rating and 9000 pounds and under in weight. This plate is valid for all motor homes regardless of their weight. The annual fee is $21.50.

This is were it gets sticky, when it came to registering the bus, I was told to pick my rating, 9000/12000/14000/16000 or 26K

I chose 26K, 3years ago because:



1) I didn't want to get hassled out of state, by "a professional, that doesnt know all the different state laws", and then a stop could bring out other issues that I legally have with state to state rules and regs-> better to be safe than sorry



2)This provision in Bold/Italiacs wasn't an option, so thank you for making me look, $21.50 + $40 wheel tax is better than $165 a year!!!

and it looks like personal tags are available also now, that will still be cheaper than wt'd tags!!!

going to go and try to register now!!!
so I will check into this next month!!!

They told me today at the tag office that I can have personalized plates!
And I had a tag credit so that will save me $200+. I still need a VIN verification from the fuzz, and a weight slip. So they begrudgingly made me a temporary tag.
My bus is finally legal to drive! woohooo!

I drove mine as much as possible throughout the early winter months when I got it tagged.

Get out and have some fun before you cut that top!! ;)

Duly noted, thanks I will!
Hoping to drive it up to the Fl folk fest in White Springs this May, even if its a metal tent. May just sleep in the hatch of our Impreza again, though.
Going to get some fresh fuel and weigh it tomorrow. Very excited to drive it more than a couple mile again.

Its an exciting day. Driving over to the bus in a little while to take her to the truck stop for a weigh-in. Hoping since its stripped down pretty well that it won't register as too portly a beast.

I wish I had a chance to do this a few times along the build.
