Hi all
Anybody know what the requirements are for Illinois?

I just bought a 87 Chevy bus from a guy in Illinois he says he already has it titled as RV but I dont see RV any place on the title, the title says the following (Year) 1987 (Make) Chevy (Model) S6000 B6P042 (Body Style) Carryall


Further down it does say "Mobile Home Sq ft." but no dimensions or numbers are given, there is also no GVW on the title.

Any tips on how I should approach this when I go to get the title work done? Do I tell them it is a RV?
What GVW plates do I need to get my class C motor home is 10,500 and thats what I told them when I first bought it and got the plates.

Right now this is still a bus it has all the seats still in its not converted to a RV, I dont plan on doing anything until this spring then I might cut off the whole back and start all over making a tube steel frame, should I just keep it an open title until I make the conversion?

Thanks in advance sorry for all the dumb questions here are some pics http://12.215.122.222/bus.htm

In Georgia a bus is a bus is a bus is a bus. And Progressive charged me 600 plus for 12 month's insurance. GMAC wouldn't talk to me.

Same here I also had to go with independent progressive agent. I have just PLPD it runs me $382/year. I'm 24 with a clean driving record, zero points.

I went to local currency exchange and told the lady it was a bus almost coverted into a motor home so she titled it as a MH and ordered me RV plates that came in about a week the title came about 4 weeks later and it now says motor home on it .

First thing I asked GMAC when they answered the phone was do you insure buses she said yes, they seem more intrested in my past driving record than anything else.

I forget the exact cost but it was real reasonable I only insured for basic coverage so I could drive it once I have the conversion done and some money sunk into it I will raise the coverage to cover me if something major happens.

British Columbia Requirements

Here is what ICBC in British Columbia requires.

A motor home is a vehicle that has sleeping facilities and at three of
the following five items:
- cooking facilities
- refrigeration or icebox facilities
- self contained toilet (not capable of easy removal)
- heating or air conditioning facilities independent of
the vehicle's motor
- portable water supply system including a faucet and
sink.

To obtain an insurance premium quote, please contact your local Autoplan
Broker. To locate a broker, refer to the following link:
http://www.icbc.com/insurance/insura_broker_locator.asp

Dont know about the yellow yet, but will post as soon as I know.

dont know if they have to work, I doubt they will go and try them out. I'm sure it all depends on where do you have it licensed. Some big office down in the lower mainland might be a little bit more sticky on things, but I'm sure up in the north they dont care to much. They probably just take a quick look in to it to see that you removed the seats and did something with it.

here is the reply to my question about the yellow in BC.

I agree. It's all probably a matter of whether or not you're getting inspected. Some places will require an inspection which means that stuff probably needs to be working and in demonstratable order. Others just require pictures in which case making it look functional is enough.

If you're really lucky you get a place like up here (or down here to you I guess) where I just had to sign an affidavit saying I did the stuff. It was kinda like college where there are specific groups in which you must have so many "credits" but there are electives within each. I actually got my plates well before my conversion was done, but it never hit the road until it was done and it had all the stuff that the affidavit listed. I just needed the plates so I could get my insurance set up.

I'm afraid I'm no help here. TWE is still registered & titled as a bus. I am not anywhere near to meeting the requirements to attempt to get it changed over yet. I don't get time to drive it much anyway.
Seems like there is someone else on this board in NC that has gone through the process, I'll try to remember who and post.

Congratulations on your House Car! Sorry to hear your bus is gone, though.

Re: Typical RV License Requirements

why not register it as an bus, personal property tax would be lower right?
would cot of insurance be greater?
