Do I need to get my title changed to rv

I live in Ohio and bought a bus that is partially converted to a RV. I got the title transferred into my name already and it still says bus on the title. Is there any advantages/disadvantages to getting it changed to an RV on the title? I have a CDL, so I'm not worried about that portion of it.

School busses and regular busses have more rigorous inspections and more expensive insurance

In many states (it varies) RV insurance is much cheaper than regular auto. "Commercial" policies tend to run higher. And any rig designated as a paid passenger carrying vehicle will be really expensive. Need to check wherever you plan on registering.

I had mine changed to RV. Cheaper insurance , don't have to stop at weigh stations, cheaper plates, no cdl. All I had to do was tell the title bureau I re-bodied my bus to an RV. Had to sign a waiver stating I had sink, toilet, bed, table, and water tanks. They issued me a new title that says RV.
