Hello Cheroki
I had the same problem as you. I went to an insurance agent. She gave me a COMMERCIAL liability policy ONLY for 6 months through progressive.

texas insurance

My agent at the Texas Farm Bureau said they would insure when I'm ready. Yes, even a bus conversion, but he will add a rider to the policy detailing the conversion to be sure it is covered correctly.

Process for motorhome title on bus

I had a very hard time getting just personal liability insurance. The next step I searched Texas DMV site for requirements to license as motorhome. It will give you about ( 6-7 ) requirements to work that, but you only have to have ( 4 ) I believe according to thier website. I am doing Elect. System, composting toilet, fridge and a bed, which I believe covers what I need. On completion of work you must take the bus with interior and exterior photos and a completed Altered Vehicle Form to your local DMV for inspection. Form # escapes me its on the website with the requirements. If you are succesful they will send a new MotorHome title for the bus. If you have more questions I will help all I can!!!! Have a great day!!!

More than enough help! Saved me a lot of time researching to get general idea. I'm assuming then you had to get it titled and insured as a private bus when you first bought it. Wondering if I strip the seats and find local dump close to where I buy the bus and ditch them fast if they'll let you register it not as a bus like other states. I believe it had to be under 15 capacity

At present mine still has ALL the seats, have not started deconstruction yet! But have collected almost everything I want to do the build except solar panels. I am re using part of the seat frames in the build everything else will go yo scrap.
