Hell yeah it will pass! Unless its a real smoker. I use Diesels Only for my e tests. You'll need it weighed, vin inspected, and emissions tested along with your statement of fact about it being converted, and proof of ins. My buses run about 150-20 per year for reg in Adams county

The certificate I got with mine said it cost $85 and was done at a place on Alameda, just west of I-25 (Diesels Only?). Not sure if they make any distinction between engines, but they listed mine as an International (my bus is a Thomas body, CAT engine).

My muffler and tailpipe were rotten and it passed anyway, so I don't think they're too picky...

I'd like to add to this thread, as I've been in touch with the Colorado Department of Revenue recently about their converted RV requirements.

I specifically asked them about a revised statute that covers this. It took them about 24 hours to get back to me, but I was told by the DoR that there is no revised statute that specifically covers RV conversions. They did send me the following, which is their guidance when you ask them (copied verbatim from the paper they sent me):

Quote:
Modifying a Complete Vehicle to a Motor Home
To qualify as a motor home the vehicle must contain permanently installed independent life support systems. It must provide at least four of the following facilities:
* Cooking
* Refrigeration or ice box
* Self-contained toilet
* Heating and/or air conditioning
* Potable water supply system including a faucet and sink
* Separate 110-125V electrical power supply and/or LP gas supply

When a complete vehicle such as a van or school bus, is modified or altered and does not incorporate four of the above additions, it would retain the original body style, and does not qualify as a motor home.

A DR 2444 Statement of Fact must be completed by the applicant listing the modifications completed on the vehicle
A certified weight slip is required
A DR 2698 Verification of Vehicle Identification Number is required
And for anyone that doesn't know, diesel emissions is on a by county basis. Counties near Denver usually test, but outside of that they don't(I know Weld county does not).

Not to awaken an old post, but I'll be going in the beginning of November to register mine as an rv. I'll report back and share the experience. I'm in arapahoe county BTW.

I'm being forced to take a day off work for emissions because I can't find anyone who will do the heavy duty test on a Saturday. Also I was "informed" that the vin verification wasn't needed if previously registered in CO. Is this true? I want to make sure if I need one to get one so when I go to DMV I have my ducks in a row. however I'm not excited about driving the thing all over town since Denver feels like LA lately when it comes to traffic, but a day off of work takes months in the making...no lunch breaks, no days off period, hence the ensuing bus life...

Thanks y'all

VIN verification should not be needed if it is a Colorado title. I've only had to do that for our of state vehicles before. If, for some reason, you do need a VIN verification, many Sheriff's offices do them for free.

Since youre changing the title type, i bet apples to nuts you will need to show a vin verification. The emissions place will do that for you, so will most title/reg offices if you're a resident. My title was colorado and I still needed one when i changed. It was also adams county. You'll need a weight slip from a certified scale, too. Along with insurance and the e test.

How did you folks do your statement of fact? I'm not very good at short and to the point and have tendency to ramble.

Could someone from Colorado who's gone through the whole process outline what one needs to do from the time you get to the lot to purchase a bus to being able to legally drive it where ever one wants? So for example how to make sure you can drive it off the lot, when and how to get it registered (re-registered?). What do you have to do as far as emissions go? Do you have to do something with the VIN? Did you ever need a CDL? etc.
