MA - Private Bus?

Hi,

Looking at getting a bus to use for private 'cocking about' and the Run to the Beach Relay Race in 2011 (http://www.rtbrelay.com). I've seen lots of discussions about converting the bus to an RV which was what I was thinking I would do until I realized there is required equipment I don't need. How can I just have a bus to drive my friends around in? Doesn't seem like it should be so hard to do that.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the advice! Any ideas what a CDL class would cost?

Its more likely that I'd make more effort to convert the bus or get a smaller one at this point but I don't want to rule out the CDL yet.

Ouch! For that money I'll just convert it. I wanted it to be simple, why am I not surprised its not.

Thanks for the help!

ya its pretty much all or nothing. with a CDL you can open more job opportunities to. just remember your private coach is NOT FOR HIRE!! or you can face fines!
