Oregon doesn't have sales tax either. Well... it seemed like it would be easier to move than to make this thing floatable.

Those floating buses are cool. They must be front wheel drive to pull themselves out of the water on the boat ramp.

ohio isnt bad for classic vehicles.. as far as registering my bus as an RV.. I dot know. though I never see the DOT cars out.. im sure i'd be the one to get pulled over if I had a tag that says 'RV' and I had a bus full of people...

though to register as a 'Van' id have to pull half the seats out and spread the rest out anyway to get below the 16 passenger limit... so maybe slapping a stove and frig in the back (thank god ohio RV reqs doesnt mandate a Toilet or sink).. just a bed, a frig and stove...

im guess all these rules are because people used to buy bisses and then jsut hang out a shingle and say "free rides???".. wierd.. both my insurance comany and progressive will insure old school busses owned by individuals..

I just really dont want to have to go get a full CDL with air-brakes endorsement.. PITA

do you have yours outfitted out for all-out RVing or just the minimums to pass DOT?

wish me luck got a 'hold placed' on what looks to be a Nice carpenter.. 7 row fresh DT-360.. has a wheelchair lift that im sure can be removed and still keep the extra door. ??
pics look good, have yet to drive it and inspect it myself.. No A/C but I was lucky to have it before... so I'll build it like I have done many times in project vehicles before...

does anyone know if you can simply replace the red Flasher lenses with yellow and be legal in ohio? or remove the all the flasher assemblies? I know the stop sign has to come off completely...

i'll have it professionally painted since I dont have the facilities to do such... all yellow gone just to be safe..

does anyone know if carpenter body parts are readily find-able still? like I say I accidentilly broke a window or need plastic window latch pieces, etc.. carpenter has been gone for a long while so thats my one concern over say a bluebird or IC where the company still exists..

I busted a window in the old blue bird and believe it or not it was super simple to find another one..

really? good advice.. .. what do I do with it.. are there places to list them?

I can easily be careful removing it and its electronics intact.

ive never pulled one out so im hoping the door will still close and latch without the lift installed.

Besides, I hear there is a lot more common sense in government over there.
Maybe sooner than later
