Re: The Washington state scoop...

yea washington is a nanny state. We have laws for the laws and laws for those too. If u wipe your butt incorrectly they either tax you or you're breaking some law. I been going to the same liscensing place for 10 years because they lookout for the little guy and tell me I need to get the original owners' "signature".. is he outside in the car? wink wink...love them. I'm getting my shorty registered monday dont think I'll have a problem..

Re: The Washington state scoop...

I went in and told them "I want to register this bus as an RV," they responded, "give us money."
King County, Vashon Island.
Licensing places vary a great deal, even in the same county, or city. There's one in the U district in Seattle that helps you with subtle "wink wink" questions...

Re: The Washington state scoop...

Benton County < WA
Yup, did it today. No inspection required, they did not even see the bus, but had to provide notarized affidavid (their form) showing that it is NOT being used for commercial, and that it has a bed, tank (waste) and permanant cooking device.
Sales tax on what I paid for it, blah blah fees, and $360 later, new plates and registered as Motorhome... Only weird stipulation is that I am required to "display" a sign, visible to law enforcement, that it is "NOT FOR HIRE... that was it. I did it in B.C. cuz it was close... though I live in Walla Walla County... like Chamo Bus

Auto Licensing Tri-Cities
3400 W Clearwater Ave, Kennewick, WA 99336

Yeah... Maybe "No Trespassing" sign would work as well, or "Private" just at the door''..
Or "Mermaids welcome, Seashells Optional"..
Appreciate all your help... just had to go to the right person, everywhere was different.. Imagine that!

Re: The Washington state scoop...

Thanks for all the tips!!!
My bus came from the SanFran Bay area where she is titled as a 'housecar' so hopefully it'll be a snap.

Being in Whatcom County I am expecting the worst, but not being in Bellingham might help me!!!

She's got no restroom. But there is a sink, a wastetank, a stovetop, an icebox and a bed.
She is also not currently running driving or stopping, so I'm a bit worried about having to get her on a scale...

Re: The Washington state scoop...

Update... I recently got my bus titled as a motor home... Cost me $320... I did the inspection thru the state patrol on 112th and Portland in Spanaway... There was a 6 week waiting list... They wanted most things an RV has and not temp stuff like camp stove and such...

Here's the deal, you do need an inspection... If you go to one of the places that others had luck with out an inspection, DO NOT hand them your paper work and info... Find out first if they will simply change the classification and charge you a fee... If you give them info about your bus and yourself and they put it into the computer system and say you need an inspection, you're screwed... Once your in the system, your in...

I went to the dmv on Mountain Highway and 224th with all my paperwork, handed them everything and told them I needed to change the title and reclassify it as a motor home... They punchEd in all the info and I was ready to hand over some cash... Then I was told that it needed to be inspected... I tried to reason with then with no luck... Went to another dmv and there I was in the system and was told the sane thing...



Just an fyi for those trying to get this done... If I had just asked a few questions and found out the person I got wasn't gonna do it,I could have went to another one...

Re: The Washington state scoop...

I just changed mine from a north dakota truck title to a washington state rv title with no problems at barbs auto license agency in snohomish.
The first place i called said i had to go threw all the inspections first.
I called around for a hour trying to talk with someone at the state patrol and nobody could tell me anything.
I got a call back the next day and talked to someone helpful, the inspections are not required anymore (even to transfer from out of state) but if the licensing dept. requests it they have to be done. You do need to sign a paper stating you have permanent stove,bed,toilet ect.
So as said above, if you call around first and make sure the licensing place you are going knows whats up you should be fine.

Re: The Washington state scoop...

That's the mistake I made, so many others didn't have an issue and I figured it would not be a problem... If I had called around instead, I may have gotten away without an inspection... Once your in the system and there's notes you could be screwed like I was... It's all good because it done and over with now and I have all the inspection, reclassification and such paperwork in my bus folder...
