Has anyone insured a bus that has not been converted that is registered as an automobile??
I guess we didn't realize the whole convert to a RV, change registration to RV (then we wouldn't need all the carb stuff) and the insure as a motorhome. Oops.
How do people keep the registration current in CA before it is converted to an RV?
Most states have a way to register vehicles while off-road, undergoing refurbishment or rebuilding.
In Oklahoma we call it a "Black Tag". The vehicle is tagged as normal, but no insurance is required until it goes on the road. At that point you take in your insurance and switch the tag for a regular one.
