if you dont want your bus when you get done moving, then id plan on trying to do everything in the realm of a 30 day tag.. so you dont have to deal with registration BS..
get a COMMERCIAL insurance policy on it from say progressive or other carriers..
then simply load up and drive your bus..
if you must buy a registration tag you may end up getting saddled with CDL vs commercial vehucle etc.. I dont know virginia law and how hard it is to re-title and register as an RV.. there are threads about it here.. but first shot be reading up on the DMV site for virginia (where its current address is)..
if you can get it converted to an RV title and registered as such without having to get it inspected as an RV (its an RV build in progress).. then you have plenty of time to load, move and unlooad in your new state.
once you are done you can simply sell it.. if its in good shape and all the seats are removed (or most of them).. someone very well may want it for conversion to an RV.. or you may want it to do such for yourself..
busses make great moving vans and certainly have the capacity to handle moving..
