NEW JERSEY Titling as RV

Spoke to a very kind woman at the 'foreign titles' department of the NJ DMV. I know people have had some issues titling in this state. She was very helpful and informed me that, in order to transfer my title to NJ and change over to an RV I'd have to:

Remove all lights above windshield (on all sides)
Install permanent stove (or microwave), bed, sink.
Remove 'most of' the seats
Paint it
Remove lettering/ signs
Take color photos of all work and door tag
Get a certified weight slip
Convert MA commercial van title to NJ

then certified mail photos, weight slip, NJ title, and a $60 check to her office (all the while crossing my fingers) and they will mail RV title back.

Hope this is helpful and will update once completed.

Thats a lot of hoops to jump through. In Washington, all I had to do was to walk into the DOL, tell them I converted my bus to an RV(I had not yet) and she said OK. She changed the use class and retitled it for me and out I went. Of course I had to pay WA taxes and what not, but in the end it was just under $300 for tax/Title/reclass, etc. In and out in under 20 min.
If you are going to use this as a full time RV, you may look into doing the title swap and reclass in another state. Would save a lot of hassle.

Agreed. I sent mine in the mail to Vermont and had a transferable registration and plates in less than two weeks.

Two weeks from when I sent the application out. Registration was only like $76. I've used Vermont for years now ... if you follow the instructions you'll have no issues.

What do you have done about the insurance?
Do you insure it in NY or VT?

I originally insured it in NY through a smaller insurance company but the rates are sky high, in excess if 3 grand yearly. I'm setting up a South Dakota address to register and insure there right now. Rates are much lower.
