Re: Registration: Motorhome vs. Private bus
I just registered my bus in Michigan with the help of (Lapeer20m). I went to the DMV he sugested and still had problems. The clerk and I went round and round about what could be done and what I wanted. At first she said comercial only due to my dry weight fo 17,000 lb and my GVW of 34,000 lb. This would require inspections, certified weight certificate and a CDL. I kept explaining what I wanted and what Lapeer20m had done. She disappears in the back room for a loooonnng time and finally returns with the following. Fill out this half page form and it becomes a motorhome, just like that.
After all that I pay my $54.00 for plates, title transfer and taxes. Thats it, nothing more, done, done, done and I'm on the road.
Oh ya, my insurance is thru State Farm also as a motorhome, they required photos and wanted to know if there was a toliet, cooking facilities and sleeping (bed).
I'm legal and happy.
Hope this help's others in michigan.
