Hello from NJ-any other NJ folks here?

I jumped the gun a little and started posting in the short-bus forum but thought I'd throw a post up here to say hi. I'd love to hear from anyone else in NJ who has successfully registered a bus as an RV since NJ's DMV can be a nightmare to to work with on "normal" things I'm looking for a Ford based 20 passenger bus to convert to 4WD and use as a camper for use at Island Beach State Park for surf fishing, among other things.

Not a Ford, but for price reference in your area-

Due to the LONG horrible drive up there, I've had to pass up lots of great deals on short van based buses in NJ. You're in the land of the short bus!

I had no idea how cheaply these things could be had! Of course, I guess with so many people and so many school districts, it makes sense that buses are a cheap commodity here.

South Jersey here, and still working on getting mine flipped; my problem is the bus company I bought it from never flipped the title. The process is actually fairly straight forward. This is from the MVC handbook-

Quote:
Bus – Motor Home (RV)
Foreign – Bus – Motor Home Page 1 of 3
Foreign Title Unit (R11/09)
General Information
1) Change vehicle type on Comp System : This Procedure will be followed when the MVC-Foreign Title Unit is notified that a bus was converted to a Recreational Vehicle (RV). The regulations concerning Certificate of ownership for used motor vehicles converted into motor homes is 13:21-20.5. This transaction can be handled through the mail or in-person at the MVC central office in Trenton. If approved, this transaction will be handled in 2 steps:
2) Issue a Replacement title on the Agency V3 System
* Motor Home Vehicle Type = 05 Required Modifications
 Remove most seats from the bus : In order for the bus to be converted to an RV, the customer must make the following modifications to the vehicle:
 Remove emergency lights including the side mounted stop sign
 Repaint the exterior of the vehicle (Cannot remain any shade of yellow)
 Install a permanent bed or sleep sofa
 Install a permanent sink or bar sink (Must be in working order)
 Install a permanent stove or microwave
