I could tell she definetely seems like "good people".
Seemed easy enough. She took my info on the phone, and is sending me a quote in the am. I'm excited.

It all boils down to:

Bring enough paperwork to denude the Pacific Northwest of all trees
Bring pix
Bring money -- LOTS of money

This worked flawlessly for me today in Plant City Florida. All I needed was the Florida Tittle for the bus, I gave them my Tittle and the Conversion Affidavit I created and showed them TL-13 so they could look it up themselves on what to do. After a 20 minute huddle with the supervisor, I was getting my new MH tittle worked up. It helps to be ready and to not say that BUS word. Its a Heavy Duty International truck that just happens to have a bus body on it. That was a key point so try not to say Bus and it should be ok. Thank you !!

Hey! I'm over in Royal Palm Beach! In a few months, maybe sooner, I'll be registering mine, too!

Ahoy plochman!
I'm in Lee County Florida. Did they "inspect" your Heavy Duty International? If so, how did that work, you can't drive it there, you have no tag. The TL-13 says all you need is ONE of the three things, but elsewhere a RV is said to require things like A/C and plumbing, etc.

Hey Dana,
I did not take my RV(Bus) to the tag office. Just follow my instructions to a T and you should be ok. On the affidavit I told them I had installed 110v power which in reality it was more like an extension cord through the window....so just go for it but take the TL-13 printed out and try not to use the "Bus" word. Lol. Here is the affidavit I made up.

Good luck ! Just be nice and try not to talk, let them figure it out lol...Ps. I drove around all day in Blue Bird One yesterday, having the seats out and put a futon in with some chairs, I loaded up my bicycle and hit a trail about an hour drive away and had a blast. I LOVE MY BUS !!!

I'm freak'in out that after all my work they will still turn me down. I am working on a budget and want to make sure I install what I need to get legal on the road. Its a pain because I know I need like $1600+ for tires and I have not take the bus on a long ride so I know very little about the drive train. But I have to dump a lot of cash in the interior FIRST so I can get it legal on the road to see what else needs fixing.

Don't want to put in a really nice fancy water & electrical system only to find out I need a new transmission!!!

Well all I did was take the seats out of my ride, took the tittle and the affidavit and hit the tag office in my little black truck. I spent nothing on the inside at all except for grinder wheels to get the bolts out of the seats. Stop all your worrying and just go get you tag and tittle !! I got insurance through a progressive, they wont sell it to you direct but they will give you a re seller local who will write the policy for them. $ 300.00 a year for minimum with road side assistance. You can probably get insurance right now today and then go get your tittle transferred and the tag all at once. Then go home and take a drive !!!
