OK, I figured I would post this here for those of us fortunate enough to live in Alaska.
According to the DMV: Statute AS 28.10.211 (e) and Regulation 13 AAC 70.110 has the following to say about motor home conversions.
A bus or other vehicle converted to a motor home is not necessarily considered a reconstructed vehicle because the body and frame are original. Only the interior of the vehicle has been altered.
A motor home is defined as "A vehicular unit, designed to provide temporary living quarters, built into as an integral part of, or permanently attached to, a self-propelled motor vehicle chassis or van." The vehicle must contain permanently installed
independent life support systems and provide at least four of the following items:
1. Facilities - cooking, refrigeration or icebox
2. Self-contained toilet
3. Heating and/or air conditioning systems for the motor home unit.
4. Potable water supply system including a faucet and sink
5. Separate 110-125 volt electrical power supply and/or an LP gas supply.
1. Application for Title and Registration (Form 812) completed and signed by the applicant. The applicant must write a statement in the affidavit section of the application, as follows: This vehicle has been permanently converted to a motor home by installation of: (must list four of the above items required.)
2. The original title to the vehicle.
- The year of the vehicle is as identified on the MCO, foreign title or previous Alaska title. When a MCO is provided for both the chassis and the unit, use the year of the unit.
The serial number is always that of the chassis/frame, NOT the number of the unit attached. the unit number may be entered as a secondary serial number.
The body style code is MH.
When a school bus is converted to a motor home, the color must be changed.
Regular Sleeper Cabs - Cannot be converted to motorhomes.
A truck-tractor pulling a commercial trailer cannot be classed as a motorhome. the trailer can be classed as a travel trailer.
Hope this helps some.
