Glad you found a bus ! What's you get???

Thee are a million insurance posts. Each State has it's own issues, call around is best bet. You may need commercial until RV.

I am insured with State Farm in WA.

When I bought my buses I called them and confirmed that my existing coverage extends to new purchases for two weeks. That covered me for the drive home.

Once I got the seats out I sent pictures. Then State Farm wrote policies on them as commercial vehicles for personal use.

When the conversion is complete I will send more pics and switch the policies to RV.

Insurance for transport

What I am having trouble with is not the insurance after my conversion . Its the insurance i need for the transport of my bus from indiana to missouri . All insurance people i have talked to so far say they cant do bus untill its converted . and before its considedred commercial , and they cant do commercial cause i dont have a buisness, so this is the issue i am having. normally it woukld fall under the purchase a vehicle and have insurance on it for several days , but its a bus and doesnt fall under that. How have any of you guys insured your bus to get it back home to start your conversion

Take a look at "broad from insurance". It covers the driver specifically driving any vehicles registered to that driver. It is not vehicle specific.

Nope ... but you might be able to get a temporary travel tag from Indiana to take it out of state. Most states offer this and some let you do it online.

You need a resident drivers license to register it in Indiana.

The link is to a Google search for "broad form insurance Missouri".

If you purchase this kind of insurance it will cover you in any vehicles that you own. Follow the links and read.
