Thanks for all of the local information, guys. It's very helpful.
I'm back reporting that I officially have an RV
Say it with me: Yayyyy!!!
It's non-plated but I have a new ownership as a Motorhome.
I went to a more rural Service Ontario and brought a statement of what I did to it, signed, as well as the safety (original copy, not faxed in, nor email...
I had to go get that and come back), and bus ownership. They were stumped and took a long time to find the information on the MTO site listing the 4 of 6 things. If I were to do it again, I would have that information printed off to share.
The only snag was questioning if I needed a UVIP (Used vehicle information package). The final answer was no, but for the sake of $20 I should have just had one ready for them. What happened is that phone calls were made and with more people involved I was questioned as to how fast we did this major conversion, with only 6 days between purchase and completion. I explained it away and we left with the paperwork in hand. We had to pay tax on the purchase and what I think was a $14 fee.
On to insurance...and we are hitting snags.
It really looks like Allstate will be the best.
Wayfarer doesn't touch bus conversions.
Echelon is calling us back in a few days, and were pretty pessimistic.
RSA had us calling around to every department possible before we gave up. (Anyone toss us the name of a broker?)
State Farm said no...but it had nothing to do with the bus, but rather a series of tickets. I suspect Allstate will come back the same tomorrow but there may be options.
Our own insurance company seemed to find every road block possible to chalk this up to a bad idea. I should have listened to the warnings here NOT to mention the word BUS to insurance. I was trying to get temp to get it home. Lesson to learn for the next person reading this...
Baby steps, but it's getting closer. Thanks for all the leads so far!!
