vehicle definitely doesnt have to be registered.. however as others have said the insirance companies love to deny claims for any number of reasons.. (they look for reasons to deny) some policies only cover a single driver.. in fact most are that way.. something to think about when multiple people may be driving your bus..

carry comprehensive if you can... covers fire, vandalism, or other non-collision damage. (tree falls on your bus).

comp coverage is the reason I got a rather nice insurance pay-out when my first bus was deemed destroyed after the garage fire.

while I also believe that busses dont tend to stand out, the only attention ive gotten from police in mine has been "neat bus, what do you do with it?".. doesnt mean that even a minor fender bender couldnt cause you great issues with the police if your tags are not proper and current. Police take "thumbing your nose" at the law very seriously.. so a simple traffic stop with infractions can give them cause to look for many more things "wrong"... whereas keeping current tags and good faith effort into complying goes a long way toward other stuff being overlooked by the cops...

Maybe it varies from state to state. I'd bet on it.
It does! In Michigan it's "no fault"...most states somebody gets blamed...and you gotta have "full coverage" to get fixed if they put the blame on your...lol the original thread is gone!

It took me 2 years to learn that this site has an Ignore User button, and that I actually had a need for it.

Shorty runs like a BEAST.
Gonna attempt to fix it in the next week or two.

After 5 years of no wheat, barley, or rye I've been enjoying donuts and beer.
Breakfast of champions!
