Florida rv title instructions

Iím going to share this on a couple threads. Keywords: Florida title RV
Florida Insurance

Attached is the EXAMPLE TL-13-05 form titled Certificate of title requirements for Recreational Vehicles...
You have to type or write your own up.
Mine said:
This is to certify that I, Sandra Blankenship, owner of a 2003 Amtran, VIN XXX, hereby request the vehicle be classified as recreational vehicle for the following reason:
Installed 110 V electrical wiring and installed plumbing system.
Sign your name. THATíS IT.
Additionally, if anyone tells you it has to be inspected, tell them to call the supervisor at the field operations south district headquarters in West Palm Beach. Her name is Ursula, and the phone number is 561Ė640Ė6820. Tell them that according to Ursula it does not have to be inspected.

It certainly comes up a lot. Some folks are willing to pay 3x normal price because a dealer will submit that simple form. I took my title to the tag office with that ^ written on notebook paper and got my title change in ten mins for free.
Thx for posting that!

Florida Bus to RV

I walked into the Citrus County DMV with the AFFIDAVIT FOR CHANGE OF BODY TYPE that the DMV has on their website for Florida. It is a simple form. It does not ask about what you did to convert. My only fail was not having a weight slip. We drove it to a quarry that was very close and they weighed the bus for us and gave us a weight slip. I went back to the DMV and the change was immediate. We bought the bus from an auction and the DMV sighed (loudly) because they had no idea as to whether the man from the school board had the authorization to sign as seller. After a call to the school board i walked out with my motohome title.

Hi there... see the very first post in this thread for the instructions on changing title to RV aka motor home. It's a super easy process.
I'm in Stuart, on east coast, just above Palm Beach.
