Kansas laws/requirements

I am new to Kansas and looking at buses to first use as storage an then hopefully convert to an rv.

Found some locally that I am going to check out in the morning. They have nebraska tags that expired in April on them and look to have been recently retired. All three internationals one with a dt466.

Any info on what is required in KS? Haven't had much luck finding anything online. Sent an email to the KHP.

My plans really are a few seats for max 10 people. Potty. Fridge. Some bunks.

Any news in the Kansas arena? I’m moving my bus to Kansas to complete the conversion. Any answers or insights as to how Kansas operates? Thanks!

If you hold a Kansas Drivers License you will need a Non-Commercial Class B for a vehicle over 26000 lb GVWR

I live in Wamego Kansas area West of Topeka and just bought a short bus. The bus came from the Missouri side of KC. Currently I have it insured as passenger van and will change to RV once completed. I got my VIN inspection done (Big thanks to local Sheriff for coming to your house) and I'm ready to go tag vehicle. I called the treasurer and they said they will send me to appraisers office to ask me some questions. I wondered if I could get a 30 or 60 day tag as is before doing the conversion and then getting it as an RV as I finish up the conversion? Any thoughts? What all do they mean by self contained? Electrical system? Running water? Toilet, etc?

They usually mean that you have fitted some or all of a list of features.

120V electric
Toilet
Cooking facilities
Food Storage (fridge)
Beds
Running water

The list varies, and what they accept as "fitted" varies too.

Some states only demand an affidavit saying that the changes have, or are about to be, made. Others require inspections.

Thanks

That was the information I was looking for. A police officer told me that Busses cannot be titled "RV" unless they were converted by at certified 3rd party.

I never heard this before, so the information on that document is helpful.

I need to get my rig to Kansas to complete the conversion and on to inspection.

Thanks for the document.

-Lewis.
