Idaho requirements?

Will be moving to Idaho eventually so figured I should check up on what their requirements are for a bus conversion to motorhome status. This way I won't have to make additional changes once moved.

Not having much luck with their DMV site. Is there another department? Anyone know requirements or where to find them?

Well we just bought a bus in the past week and we took it in to our DMV and they wanted us to get non-business commercial plates because it doesn't meet Idaho's requirements.

I've attached images of the requirements form they gave us at the DMV.

What really baffles us is in Washington it is already registered as a motorhome.

We just opted for non-business commercial truck licensing for now.

Why didn't you just go in and transfer the title to your MH to your name? Did you open a can of worms for yourself by offering too much info?

No when they went out to the bus to read the VIN they noticed it was "lacking" motorhome quality's.

Anyways, just thought I would share what I found out about Idaho's requirements.

Idaho

Hi,

We live in Idaho. Bought a bus last year. We did a "cheat" that I read about here on the forums. We registered our bus as a motor home in Vermont. Vermont sent us tags, plates, the whole 9 yards. Then we took the Vermont plates to the Idaho DMV, and registered our "motor home" in Idaho. Now we have Idaho MH plates. Didn't take the bus to the DMV for an inspection or anything either. Which is good, because we are still in process of converting it.

Hope this helps.
Michele

This is how simple it should be on something that is already titled as something other than a school bus. I shouldn't need anything more than a Bill of Sale and a title to walk out with plates in my name.
