Does private bus insurance cost about the same as RV insurance?
Sorry, can't answer that one, I'm still in the research stage. Why not register the bus as a private truck as soon as you buy it? This way you can drive it and use it while the build is going on. As I mentioned previously, I see no benefit in going through the title change process after the build is complete unless you feel it's needed for the reasons I mentioned. From all the research I've done on the Virginia DMV website, it won't be retitled as an "rv" but will be called a "Specially Constructed Vehicle". Va doesn't seem to be as lenient /open to vehicle title changes as other states such as Florida.
