Appreciate that. The bus is basically done and livable, there are some things I want to upgrade or address. The rest is just getting it registered in Florida. I had it VIN inspected and emissions tested here and they wrote it up as a motorhome/RV, which I hope helps overall.

I didn't have to do that. The place I bought it from did it for me so when I received my bus it was already titled as a motor home. I am so thankful I didn't have to deal with that

They don't do vin inspections or emissions or any of that in FL. If you bring in an out of state vehicle you have to have the vin inspected but that's just having a notary stamp a form. Changing the title to MH in FL only requires you to fill out a very simple affadavit saying that you have electric, plumbing, etc. The company you bought your bus from technically breaks the law by re-titling and lying on that affadavit. FWIW.

All you'll have to do when registering in FL is stand in line and pay them when the time comes.

Was hoping you maybe had a 5 gallon bucket of them in a deep freezer or something.
They really are delicious.
