I know this is more a bus conversion site, but I'm really hoping someone on here may have some information on this subject! We are seriously on the verge of buying a 1997 Ford E350 Powerstroke 11 ft box truck. It was prior a moving truck basically. I have called USAA and Progressive and they both have told me that they will not cover a RV conversion as such. And noted I did not ask if they would cover it, I asked them what requirements there are in place in order to register this truck under a "non-professional bus conversion". Are there any requirements other than the few I found online (i.e., Cooking appliances, Refrigeration, Bathroom facilities, Self-contained heating and/or air-conditioning, A drinkable water supply, A 110–125 volt electrical power system)? We'd also like to add a transparent (not sure of material yet) sliding door to really open it up ! Legal? And then how do we go about registration when the process is all finished??
Oh! We're also in Michigan thinking about moving to South Carolina when the process is finished/half way done (this may help with the specific conversion protocols?).
Any information will be greatly appreciated!
