Hey Outcast, As I said previously, we just went in and inquired and evidently lucked out. From what I have heard is you have to have made enough changes to be able to call it an RV. I sent an email to Ghostrider in Ellijay as to what he did to get the tag changed. Maybe he has more to offer you.

All we had for paperwork was the bill of sale, the old title and the old tags. As I said before we had to go back twice cause the first time the clerk didn't have the answer and was going to forward all our paperwork to her Super who was supposee to call us but never did. When we went back, we got the same clerk who remembered us and went to her Super......who probably told her to just process us (maybe just to get rid of us cause she f----ed up and didn't do her job....don't know)

Good luck!!!! Will check with Hubby in the AM to see if he can add more to this for you.

They rent 15 passenger vans to take places, and I wondered why they only allowed that many, now I know.



You must have a certified weight certificate and pictures of your conversion when you apply for a motorhome title change.



Oh yeah, you must have liability insurance!!!
So today I went to register my Bus as a Motorhome in League City, Tx. They told me that they would title it as a "passenger vehicle over 6000 lbs. basically it's a car and anyone can drive it with a class c license. It had to have a Texas MVP inspection and I had to weigh it, but that's it! It still has all of the seats in it! I'm thinking they might have it wrong, but they are the experts.

I am guessing that your rig doesn't meet the requirements for being a Motorhome yet. I am pretty sure THEY have it right.

But they said that they were not calling Busses Motorhomes anymore. It really doesn't make any difference if it is considered a passenger vehicle and I can get insurance. They assured me that I wouldn't need a CDL. They didn't even want to look at it. Maybe my Insurance will be cheaper now that it is considered a private passenger vehicle. We shall see...

Busses are busses & motorhomes are motorhomes, you must complete the conversion for a bus to be a motorhome. Pre-converted busses are not motorhomes in any state. Take the seats out first at least.

Nope, it's all finished. It is registered the same as a Motorhome. I asked three people in the DMV and they assured me that my bus is titled the same way they issue titles for Motorhomes. Don't know where you are, but Texas didn't make a big deal out of it.

for Western NC owners in search of an insurer:

Appalachian Insurance on Haywood Road, Asheville. If you vehicle is still titled as a bus, you will need a business policy.
