Re: Buckeye Pair-a-Docs

The bus is painted, Interior is done, frigs filled with beer, registered as an RV with plates, 4 TV's; now I can't find anyone to insure it. Can anyone help?

I'm in Texas but I got liability only through National General.

Might be worth your time to call them, I got mine on the phone not online.

Chuck, I was just checking out the pictures in your photo gallery. You are truly a woodworking craftsman. That wood ceiling is just beautiful! ALL the woodwork is beautiful!

Chuck - I'm hoping to have the Octobus ready for the Michigan-Ohio game as well!

We should meet up, assuming you're wearing maize and blue? (wink)

Great work!!

Re: Buckeye Pair-a-Docs

Tell insurance companies it is an RV. In your case a Thomas RV (or whoever the company is). Be vague. Do not use the words bus or conversion. Worst case scenario is you'll have to find a broker to insure it at a higher price.

You could also try registering it as a commercial vehicle and get it insured that way.

It's a PITA. If I had to do it all over again I'd get it registered as commercial or a van. Mine is registered as a motorhome and they don't do commercial insurance on those. RV insurance is cheaper but it is just tough to find someone to insure it.
