Re: ANYONE DEAL WITH OHIO / PA DMV?

hey jkronmiller,
here is my story, my friend and i bought our bus in pa, 25,000 lb GVWR (no cdl rewuired) got insurance and a registration as a bus and looked into pa to register as a motor home and ran into all the BS youre talking about, pa seems to be a bear to deal with doing a conversion even under 26k lbs... so since i paid 90% of the bus cost and once i had the required stuff inside (stove, fridge, table, sleeping quarters, sink) we transfered the title to me in ohio... i signed an affadavit that i had the stuff inside, got a MH (motor home) title and once i get insurance (this week, i need to show em pics of inside and out) i will get plates and be legal, registered, insured, and legally allowed to drive as a motor home...

its a pain in the butt, and from what i saw in pa i wanted nothing to do with it, luckly ohio was a better option...

i wonder if you know any close trustworthy friends or family in maybe ohio, or a southern state to title it where the laws are less draconian...

GOOD LUCK!!

brian

Re: ANYONE DEAL WITH OHIO / PA DMV?

Thanks for the info. I purchased the bus, it's a 98 - 72 passenger Thomas on the IH chassis. Just removed the last seat. PA is a complete mess on this. I wish I still had family in Ohio because that is sure where this would get registered!
