We bought a bus (without a plan!)

We bought a bus on a whim. What were we thinking? But, we are excited to pick her up and start our conversion. Really glad to have found this site. Can anyone point me in the right direction/forum for more info on the legal way to get her home? We purchased in Michigan and have to drive it back to Ohio. Our driver has a CDL, but not sure what else we need to do. I don't think it will have a tag. Any info is appreciated. Did I say we are excited!!!!

Welcome.

That's a nice looking bus, and you've got basement storage. Don't even have to paint it.

Just like a used car. You'll need temp tags. Your current insurance policy will usually do for recent vehicle purchases, but check on how long you're automatically covered.

All you can do is talk to the DMV in your state and in Ohio, trying to be in compliance with both states. Others here may have similar experience from your area.

We currently live in Sandusky, but we bought a beautiful piece of land in Peru Township (Huron County). 7 Acres on the river. This is where the bus will spend a lot of her time.
