Re: Smitty's Bus

Looks great though. Another thing I would need to consider though is since mine is a shortie I dont need a special license to drive it. If I added an extension, it may be too long and I might need to get a different license. Im not sure, but I do know that PA does like to make things hard, so Im sure I'd have to jump through hoops

Depends on the state. In MOST states, there are exceptions. Recreational vehicles, regardless of length, air brakes and/or weight are exempt from the CDL requirement. That is why so many coach converters opt to title as "Recreational Vehicle", "House Truck", "Motor Home" or whatever your state's designation is. Insurance is often cheaper. Lots of folks insist that you need the CDL because of air brakes,or weight but if you look at the CDL exemptions for your state, it should have RV's listed (buried) in there somewhere. If you don't look for the exemption and only look at the standard list that tells you what type driver's license you need for what type vehicle, then you will (mistakenly) think that you need a CDL. UNLESS you are using your bus as a COMMERCIAL enterprise, then you should be titling as a private RV. If you are titled as COMMERCIAL, then you are required to keep log books, stop at weight stations, and are subject to any and all fines applicable to COMMERCIAL use.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Re: Smitty's Bus

He had some run-ins with the local cops--maybe he's in Jail?
Hope not.
He was a prolific poster so I figure something happened.
