Re: First timer questions/help
Is the bus your looking at already registered as an RV in NC? If it is, you can drive an RV with a regular license here (there may be weight restrictions after 25k but I'm not sure). If the title still says "SB" under body style, you'll have to paint it a color other than yellow and meet certain requirements (g.s. 20-4.01(27) d: "Motor home or house car. - A vehicular unit, designed to provide temporary living quarters, built into as an integral part, or permanently attached to, a self-propelled motor vehicle chassis or van. The vehicle must provide at least four of the following facilities:** cooking, refrigeration or icebox, self-contained toilet, heating or air conditioning, a portable water supply system including a faucet and sink, separate 110-125 volt electrical power supply, or an LP gas supply."
If your bus meets those, you need a state inspector come to your bus, verify it's no longer a school bus and is now a motor home and give you a body style change form. Take that to the Dmv with proof of insurance and you're good to go.
Just a heads up, Good Sam insures skoolies for liability through National General.
Keep us updated on how it goes!
