Mine's licensed as a non-commercial truck since I don't have enough RV components installed yet.
I am curious about this, what state are you in, and you don't have to list your individual vehicles on your policy?

GMAC and Poliseek (formerly AON) will cover bus conversions. I don't think it matters what kind of bus.

http://www.poliseek.com/rv (website if you just want to get a quote)
Requested a quote from Poliseek for a bus conversion, since they specifically mention school buses on their website. Got a phone call the next day. The sales rep asked 2 questions - will it be registered in CT (same as my address), and was it a school bus or transit. I said yes, and school, and she said they had no market for that type of liability. (Might just be in this state.)

Just got off the phone with GMAC. $278 for 6 months, state minimum liability on the bus. Said it was a bus conversion that I did myself. Didn't mention the word school, and she didn't ask. Previous title just says "bus." Now the challenging part - DMV.

That is a bummer Smitty. I have Progressive. They haven't caught up to me--yet. Insurance sure is a racket.

Insurance should be an option ONLY, not compelled. However, thanks to their lobby, we live in a "progressive" country.....

I have liability only from GMAC on 2 skoolies. One has been about 2 years I think, and the other has been less than 6 months.

I live in VA.

I think you must have talked to a misinformed agent.

But I agree, getting out of VA is a goal of mine too.
