Long Island NY DMV

well Thursday, I registered my bus..after a total of 5 1/2 hours at DMV.. they registered it as a Home on Wheels ... how or why i have no idea but thats what they did with no proof of conversion or anything else...

I am not sure how they did this,God is looking out for me... but so you know... NY requires the insurance card to have a barcode so it can be scanned, and if your drivers license has any initial for the middle name it must appear on the insurance card as exactly the same...
the barcode they scan must also include your client or drivers ID number embedded in the barcode...

notice that its H/Wh ... Home on wheels.. also note the color is yellow.. and its also passenger plates... on my way to having my skoolie

I registered my shortie in Westchester last year - same deal, took probably 4 hours and finally walked away as "house on wheels." I didn't care so long as I could drive on the Taconic!

LOL Ny takes forever to do nothing but send you away with a get back in line fast card that does nothing but have you wait some more... and then you get to wait a little more... and guess what.. again even longer... but when its close for DMV staff to go home... EVERYONE MOVES FASTER!!...smh..

Yeah yeah... lol im jealous... not really cuz now i can save even more money on my skoolie insurance and use it to build... that time i spent in DMV was also on no sleep since the day before... i was so shot but didnt have the energy to get angry about it... not that it would have helped... just typical time frame for LI DMV...

I had my bus weighed at some cat scales and took that in to show them the weight. They accepted it where I went in NV.

Thanks hoping I can pass without a weight inspection. Don't want to have to pay a fortune to tow it back and forth just to get a weight. No other way to do that without plates
