Just chiming in but I wouldn't do this if you plan to full time in California. They have a program that rewards you for ratting out your neighbor for having out of state plates. I wouldnt risk it if I was in CA.

No, I mean keep yourself presented as a traveller that started out in Vermont, until you find a place you want to stick around for a while.

Only when you've been in the same place for a while, register for school, work etc or local cops get to know you, do you need to switch the registration over.

Hi All,

I am about to attempt to register a newly purchased bus in VT as a MH.

My questions are these:

The GVWR on this bus is 35,180 lbs, unladen weight is 20,960 lbs. When filling out form VD119 do I declare the GVWR above 26,001 or will that kill the transaction? or does it matter? I'm trying to avoid a CDL.

Also this bus has Air brakes. Do I need to check that off or can I leave it blank?

My goal is to register it in VT get the Bus to MA on those VT plates and then complete the conversion, then transfer over to MA plates..


The bus is a 1986 Crown..

Thanks..

I will neither confirm nor deny that my gvwr sticker in the bus says 30,000 and my VT registration says 26,000.

I thought paper de-rating is no problem, as long as you never actually load more than you declare?

Couple questions regarding the form...

At the very top, the shaded area with old #1, new #1, new #2, and everything to the right....do i need to fill out this area?

Under number 1 - off the the right it asks for Vermont License #. Do i need my TX DL anywhere on this form?

Number 9 - It appears this is a price breakdown? Is there where i itemize the charges to explain money order amount?

Yeah! Finally got titled as motor home in my home state. I did a one year registration with Vermont. Before that expired I brought in my Vermont title and registration to my local title office and said "I need to get this titled and registered in Louisiana now." It is not insured yet so I can't get it licensed yet, but I sure am glad I was able to get it titled as a motor home with out all the mess Louisiana wants you to go through. I did have to pay taxes again in Louisiana but I knew that was coming. sketch1525664174971.jpeg

That's great news! Did Louisiana ask you why the bus was registered in Vermont under your name if you were a resident of Louisiana?

That's my big question. Will my state (Arizona) ask me how I got my skoolie registered in Vermont if I wasn't a citizen there?
