North Cackalacky

So, either my Google is broken or North Carolina is difficult as usual. I'm guessing it's the latter, but I'm hoping someone here can help.

I know somewhere there is a form to change the vehicle body type from SB to MH (or house car or whatever stupid terminology this state uses.) I've been able to find the form for pretty much every other state in America, but North Carolina evades me. I also only have access to Internet on my phone (Samsung Galaxy note II) which has done me pretty well so far, but I know sometimes an actual computer helps.

Has anyone by chance come across this form or what it's called?

My plan is to take the title, bill of sale, this magical form, and some pictures. I know they're going to tell me that it needs to be inspected, to which i will respond with the fact that I can't take it to get inspected without plates, so... Take my money and give me plates! I already know no one there knows what the hell I'm talking about because we were there the other day doing an instant title for a trailer and the lady I asked was just like "uhhhh....I think you'd need some kind of inspection I think, but I can ask my supervisor if you want." We were in a hurry so I declined. I'll be going back to that same DMV after I try the one out here in the sticks.

the google search for "north Carolina change of body types" shows a link http://WWW.bipac.net/semaga/tagtitletoolbox_NC.pdf

it says:
A motor vehicle of a type required to be registered hereunder that has been ... materially altered or has a body constructed from nonoriginal materials. ... From North Carolina Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles: .... (f) If a vehicle owner desires a vehicle title classification change, he or she may, upon ...

when I clicked the link it gave me what is above, weird

more info:

http://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/vehicle/title/vehicles/

best guess is you need to have it examined and photographed by a Motor Vehicle inspector

http://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/vehicle/title/replacement/ here mentions title change due to "significant vehicle modification"

The NC web site sucks.....may have to go down in person and waste a day at DMV

Re: North Cackalacky

Thanks Bansil! I pretty much have all that stuff (the the requirements for a MH) but the form doesn't seem to exist. Looks like it'll be a trip to the most fun place on earth... The DMV!

I have to buy a car first however :/

Re: North Cackalacky

So it turns out in NC, you can have a state inspector come to your house - for FREE - have your bus inspected, get a piece of paper (the body style change form), and take that to the Dmv with your title/bill of sale and get new plates.

Much easier than I anticipated. When registering our new truck I found the one lady that actually knew what the hell I was talking about. Apparently the trick with the inspector is they're only open/available between 8:30 and 10:30am so they can be tricky to schedule.


I'll post the $$$ details when I have em!
