My Bus in BC is insured as a 1 ton truck because it is similar to a express/savana van but I had to go to a small Insurance broker to get it done because ICBC's big chain of insurance brokerage wanted me to convert it first before getting insurance since insurance for heavy vehicles is more expensive so they wanted me to get a business/school bus insurance for $27.000 a year to drive from the previous owner to my house and since is a minimum of 3 months insurance they wanted me to pay $3000 to do that and I paid $3500 for the whole bus.....ICBC is the worst in Canada.
Basically what I did is not illegal but it is not well defined and it usually requires a check from ICBC that checks for the seats being removed, attachment holes to be covered and weight to be reduced and then they will do the same thing of insuring as a truck but if you say that you already did that you can get it insurance before that, knowing you have to do it right away, and after that once the conversion is done you can get RV insurance but for that an ICBC inspection is required to visually inspect for the minimum of RV appliances/facilities required.
I hope that helps but do not compare ICBC with any other province and take them as the worst example in Canada.
