tennessee tags,title and insurance

Stopped by our ins company and asked about insurance to get the bus home (which i haven't found yet)...he said since we are not making a new policy, We have provisions in our existing policy to buy and drive anything home and have a 72 hr "free ins" window.

He said if we would of had to make a new policy, then it would of had to be commercially under written.

I even got this in writting

Also ins quote for a 1997 Blue Bird bus RV conversion on a type 51 endorsment is 69.00 every 6 months.

He said the year wouldn't matter plus or minus a few

So another step is done, buy a bus, get it home, strip out the seats and then get a policy added to our exsisting one...easy....I hope it goes this smooth

Re: tenneessee tags,title and insurance

Stopped by the court house today.
Tags,title and registration took less than 10min from entering the door to leaving.
I walked in and said I need to register my rv.
Lady said"ok"
She said "let me see what you got"
I handed her my bill of sale and the title with my license.
She said "Honey,what wt tags you want?"
I said the state said it would be regular plates!?
She smiled and said"they are,normal plates are only good for 9000lb,do you want 16000 or 26000lb plates"
I looked puzzeled I guess
Cause she said"is it a fullsize bus or a 3/4 bus?"
I said "I better go with 26,000lb tags"
She said "better be safe and when you get it weighed you can change it next year,the ticket costs a lot more than the plates
16,000=$72.00
26,000=$144.00
Plus $30 to swap titles so$174.0 to get tags(this includes $10 wheel tax)

I said thankyou and left...headed to ins. Co

Walked in said"I want to add this rv to my insurance"
5 min later she handed me proof of insrance for a 1997 carpenter bus motor home
$75 every 6 months

Since there are no official "lists" for rv qualifications...neither asked for pics or proof

So I am set

Re: tenneessee tags,title and insurance

Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it a pain. I'll bet you did not get your tags thru Bradley County. What a PITA!

Re: tenneessee tags,title and insurance

Last time I renewed my tags in TN, I drove from Elizabethton to Cleveland (Bradley County) only to be told I had to have a piece of mail with our address on it (mail forwarding Co in Cleveland). The renewal notice wasn't good enough. Drove all the way back to Elizabethton. Walked into the Carter County.tag office. They said that Bradley County was nuts. Asked if I has anything with a local address (I did... the water bill for the place we were working on). Got a sticker to put on my Bradley county plate. Bradley County was always a pill because they were sure Mail Call was "illegal" (it wasn't). They became even worse after they got sued by the ACLU because they booted ALL the RVer's off the voting roles that were using Mail Call as a legal address.

That experience combined with having two mail forwarding companies go out of business on me is why we will set up with Escapees mail forwarding before we leave NM and then set up as TX residents (currently I'm legally NM, David is "addressless" and therefore a non-citizen in the eyes of the state). It looks like we will be moving to east TX anyway. So it's Beaumont(?) in 2014. Or maybe Lufkin.... or someplace else that's not as hot as here (today's high is forecast to be a cool 95°F) or as windy (today's winds 15 to 25 mph increasing to 20 to 30 mph in the afternoon. Gusts up to 45 mph). We often get the hurricane strength winds but not the rain. Might as well move to the coast.
