I can't see that doing much good, unless we can get under the umbrella of some previously respected organization like ANSI or ASME or something. Displaying current membership in good standing in the American Society of Enthusiastic Amateur School Bus Conversion Engineers isn't gonna do squatney.

There is an industry standard, it's the RVIA.

Yes and anyone can look up the code book for anything RV.
You can even find the best/acceptable methods for gas piping to your appliances.
I am titled and insured as a private bus and even though converted I don't know that I want to change the title to RV? I still haven't asked my insurance company about what would happen with them if I did change?banghead:

I would appreciate it if you would share the names of those companies please. I live in FL also and I'm having a difficult time finding insurance. Thank you in advance.
