haha, the people on this forum told me it was ok.

why the f, are you talking to a DOT Officer? do you do that every day, or is it something you feel the need to because you now have a big personal vehicle?

if you are under 26,001 don't tell anyone you got a "bus". not the dot people, not your insurance agent, nobody that has any possible authority over your circumstance.

you have every right to drive around in your personal RV without explaining it to every passer by.

once you have a bill of sale in your hand, its no longer registered by the former owner. that needing a cdl to get it home is a bunch of crap.

when you do use the word "bus" to anyone (police, insurance and dmv), that means you are transporting passengers for money, that takes commercial license and insurance.

you are under 26k, you need to mind you own business and not use the word "bus".

its ok! you have the right to privacy as an American. what law do you think you are breaking?

I'm not aware of a state rule that says you need an airbrake license. RV's are usually exempt from requiring a commercial license.
In Ca if the RV is over 40ft then a class B endorsement is req, not a Class B license just the endorsement .

I got the firsat bus from florida, they just handed me a temp tag... i had a mechanical failure in that one on the way home and it was parked in same spot for a couple days... a DOT guy was getting gas there... looked at it and said "cool bus", never asked me for the papers or anything... he knew I had air brakes because he asked "that sucks, what broke on it" whe ni said i was down.. I replied "air brake compressor"..

I just drove my new bus from texas to florida... I was concerned as I left it completely like a school bus... I blew by weigh stations.. passed numerous cops, had a couple pass me... no one bugged me once in the 1050 mile drive...

I was drivng sensibly at 60, wasnt swerving, or texting or such...

I didnt even paint over the word "School bus"..

I had a couple people tell me i would get hastled.. but it seems people on this forum do it all the time and dont get bugged..

I say just drive...
