school bus turned motor home

Hi gang i am Darryl and i purchased my first skoolie off e-bay which is a 1985 Nissan turbo diesel school bus around 30 foot long and seating for 35 people and about to make this bus into my full time house on wheels .it sits comfortably on 95 down the high way and just received brand new brakes from the last owner it came with rego but no rwc so once i got this bus home i booked it in for a rwc and was very pleased that it passed first go .so now about to rip out all the seats and start the build .

Welcome. You must be an Aussie. You need to include a legend. What is a rwc?

Yes show us more pictures, I don't think most of us are familiar with a Nissan powered bus.

I think RWC is a road worthiness test. Looks at lights, horn, turn signals, mirrors, etc. I did the same thing here, only it was called "have a cop come and have a cursory look at your contraption and sign a piece of paper". Would be nice if there was a short acronym for it here.

Hi all crazycal a rwc is a place that does roadworthy checks they go over the whole vehicle and check any worn out parts that needs replacing .getting a vehicle through a rwc is very costly some vehicles can cost thousands as a rwc place has trained professionals that cover all details of each vehicles and makes sure there original and not modified unless you have a engineering certificate .anytime you sell any vehicle you need a rwc to put this vehicle in your name .do you need to get a rwc is america???

Unless it's a commercial vehicle, most places in the states is "If it makes it to the street it must be roadworthy"
