I went to state farm and got a commercial policy for now. Until i can prove to the underwriters it really is an rv. I had no problems getting insurance either.

I have had 3 different buses insured with State Farm and they have been very good to me.

#1 was insured as a motorhome. #2 & #3 are currently registered as buses (commercial for personal use). As soon as the conversion is complete they will convert to Motorhome.

So I ended up buying a bus. Went to the DMV. I received RV plates got insurance. Its been almost 4 weeks and i got the title back today. It shows BUS on the Illinois title. I guess I will call SOS police to come do an inspection. I just don't want to have to pay another 100 bucks. F***

Sorry to hear

Also in Illinois and just registered, same as you- RV plates and 4 weeks to title, but fortunately titled as motorhome.

Don't forget to send another 2% of your paycheck in to Springfield so the crooks can party.

Is your bus titled RV?
