I have heard from some that they have that coverage but it won't cover a bus.

I emailed my agent with the vin number and verified coverage before I went to pick up my buses.
My State Farm covered the bus for 7 days under my existing policy, even though they won't cover it as a bus under a separate policy.

I had to sign a paper saying that I was NOT going to use it for hauling passengers for commercial transportation.
4 months go by and I get the conversion finished
{ cover }
and get it re-titled as an RV which was effortless i must say,,
Call my agent and inform him that it is now an RV no longer a bus , he says ok great , i show him the web site and he calls back to say how impressed he is .
3 days later he calls me and tells me he has called several different underwrites and none of them will cover a converted bus to an RV.
he never really said why , but that they just didn't offer it
he said he could get me bus ins. or he could get me RV insurance BUT he was not able to get me RV insurance on my VIN # because its a bus , and now that I have done the conversion , it is no longer a bus.
so I am still looking ..... my agent is a good friend , hes not jacking me around , i have had him for 45 years .
He pointed me to AIS

Thank you… I have sent everything in for the approval. They are usually pretty quick about getting back to us. I’ll let you know once I receive the approval so we can finish the process.
