Thus that becomes your insurance jurisdiction.

This does not need to have anything to do with where you actually are most of the time, and your mail forwarding service can also be somewhere else.
Awesome. Thanks so much. Getting the tags was a breeze. Gonna go for insurance next paycheck.

Thanks so much. Me and my ex had a few vehicles registered in other places where lice sing wasnt. Don't know why I thought it would be any different. I guess because of one terrible experience we had with progressive.

Your insurance comapny will want to insure it in the state it is stored or garaged in. Some who have no permanent address and live full time in their bus have issues getting coverage.

Does this appear to be correct?

Vermont DMV Check Cleared!

I mailed my check out on September 27th and it cleared at some point yesterday. I guess that means everything got accepted OK. My bus is under 15-years old, so I had to do the whole VIN Verification which had me concerned since CT uses a different verification database than VT was asking for. So this is a huge relief!


Now I start on the insurance adventure!

Recieved Plates ans Sticker, but not the title return

Hey,

I submitted all my documents to register my skoolie in Vermont. I included my title, and all documents with the $35 fee for the title return (<15 years old). I recieved my plates and stickers about 2 weeks ago but still havent gotten my title back. Im worried, what is usually the time it takes to get that back from Vermont?

�� I too submitted my paperwork on 1 Oct, I called earlier last WK and they told me that they were 2 wks behind on the mail and to call back, I called on 16th and the agent told that They returned my title fee as they were not issuing a title my bus is a 2001 and that as of that morning all was set and ready for mailing out.

On the Ins contact Wakaleeh at AIS 423 800 5512 I also have a 1996 Ford E350 and tried to insurance with Esurance as the title says Van and Esurance connected me to AIS cause the van's vin came up as motorhome and they don't insurance RV/MH or large vehicles. I was so happy that it turned that way as the premium when from $149 when first quoted (as intially she didn't notice, she said "oh this coming up as an RV") a month to a $39 down and $25 totally $242 annual , I'm in NJ and the vehicle garaged in NJ.

So if youthinking about giving up on your Skoolie dream cuz of getting insurance or designation of MH get yourself an Ford E350 like this 1
httpss://www.equipmentfacts.com/listings/trucks/auctions/online/33116933/1996-ford-e350

this is not mine but this is the model I have it comes with the MH designation ! I suggest verifying the vin's designation b4 purchasing tho! I'm no expert. I now recall that when I purchased it, the title had MH body type but when I registered it I put van and NJDMV removed MH

On another note I had my skoolie previously insured with AIS however, they won't give me MH insurance but insured as Commerical for $138 monthly and said they would insure as RV once the conversion was done. And ya know the rest of the story with that. So I expect to be able to insure my skoolie as MH once the transferable registration arrives! This skoolie will be garage in FL so I expect it to be cheaper that my E350!

I mailed all my forms and check on 3 October.
My check hasn't cleared yet...
Should I be concerned or is this the current time delay for most peeps?

If I do try calling, I assume it's the Montpelier location I want to try?

I think they do all the RV apps at once, once a month.
