I'm not Bill, but if you load your pics to photobucket first they will slip right in here.

If you don't mind my asking, how much do those graphic wraps cost?

Doing your homework pays off

Summary of my story for those searching the archives:
  • Bought my bus (2005 MidBus built on a Chevy Express 3500) in Michigan in April.
  • Got insurance through a Progressive agent after at least a half a dozen calls to various agencies (commercial policy for private use).
  • Drove to NY without plates. Michigan said I had three days to travel without registering and NY said do whatever the state you bring the vehicle from tells you to do.
  • Spent 2 months tearing out the seats, painting, remove the stop sign, etc. Had insurance, but no registration.
  • Go to the NY DMV and attempt to register the bus as a van. In NY it's imperative to get passenger plates as commercial vehicles are not allowed on the parkways.
  • DMV took forever because the situation was so unique they had to repeatedly call people higher up for clarification. It was ultimately registered as a "House on Wheels" (code: HWH, not House Couch - HOU). No idea what is special about HWH as I can't any info online about it, but I know I can drive anywhere the bus will fit.

I made a point to take pictures of the bus to the DMV which helped, but I didn't have a picture showing that a couple of seats remained (critical for the van designation).

Message me if you have any questions about the NY experience.
