Thinking if i get pulled over pull out car insurance papers and tell the cop im covered for 24 hrs under my policy..it transfers to any vehicle i drive..or so i was told.
I recently got insured by them for $98 per year. But itís different in every state.

Can you register without having insurance first? You can title it an RV, purchase insurance and then register.

Make sure your current auto policy doesn't cover new purchases. It's not uncommon for them to work with you. (in our case 7 days) I prefer not to mention the word bus, cause it opens up too many rabbit holes for them to squirm into. Get it to the place where the work will take place and I think you're golden.

I have similar coverage on purchases as well.

Before leaving to pick up a bus I emailed the vin to my agent and confirmed coverage.

I printed out the reply from my agent to show in case I got pulled over.
