Oh, the places you'll go!

Hey everyone I said to myself I would post any luck and so here goes,
2000 bluebird, 29k gvwr
I live on the road now, license is Alabama and I'm in Tennessee currently..
I went online to Vermont dmv site and downloaded their form for registration. I opened it and typed in my information, then printed.
I included a bill of sale and title (copies)
Went to post office and got a money order.
Mailed to them certified.
All from Tennessee!
Two weeks from the day they got it, I had two beautiful tags at the local post office in Tennessee ready for my pickup under general delivery!
Stickers mailed separately.
$188.00 two years registration!
Boom.

So thankful I found this forum thread - we've been given a complete dead end with the state of Georgia for getting tags, title, registration, ANYTHING that doesn't say commercial school bus. I guess I'm not the only one having a difficult time with GA. Our city code enforcement has been coming around, telling us we cannot keep the bus in our driveway unless we can get it titled as a personal RV instead of a commercial vehicle, so we've been scrambling to try to get something figured out. If it's not parked in the driveway, there's no way we'll ever finish it! We will try this route and see how it goes.

One question - The body of my bus is a Bluebird, but it's built with an International engine. I see a lot of folks who have posted in this thread use Bluebird as the Model, but our current title has International as the model. Which should I use on the VT form?

I don't think it'd make a difference but I'd go with Bluebird for the make and International for the model, no? I'd imagine they'd correct it based on your VIN in any case.

Got my plates a while back. Registration in last week. A check in today because I over paid. Title is supposed to be coming soon. Registration says MH. 😁

Took the plunge

Finally. In order to provide some useful intel I sprang for overnight delivery. I will let you know if there is a time bonus or penalty related to it. Thanks to warewolf and all the helpful skoolies that make this thread the skoolie-hack of the century!

I have one titled as an MH, the other as a Bus and progressive hasnt cancelled me.. in fact just last month I renewed for another year.. full coverage on both busses.. i figured theyd Kick me for the one titled as MH but they havent.. maybe here in the midwest the laws are different.. ohio and indiana are NOT no-fault states.. perhaps that has a bearing on what they will and wont insure in other states..

So what happens if you are quoted as a regular bus and then convert and something happens? Or if they find out you have converted? How are you/people getting around this?
Thanks,
