Questions on registration in Michigan
Hi all, I'm new here and new to bus conversions as well. I live in Michigan and am looking to buy a school bus and convert it for tailgate/party use.
I am specifically interested in a Saf-T-Liner MVP-ER, and have found a few in my price range here in MI as well as Indiana and Ohio.
From reading this forum it looks like I will need to paint it, install cooking facilities, and bed space (and possibly a toilet?) to even get it registered as an RV, but are there other registration option available to me, such as "Personal Bus"?
What are the legalities of buying a bus in another state? Assuming its still titled as commercial, must I have a CDL to drive it home to Michigan? If I'm not mistaken, one can drive a newly purchased car straight home without plates before registering it, can I do the same with a non-repainted school bus?
Are there any other legal such things I should know about?
Thank you all for your insight.
