So, if you're in Orlando, we have someone here that knows his stuff now. He actually said he was glad to learn how to do something new and different! The only thing I was missing was a weight slip. I was issued a 10 day temporary tag though which means I CAN FINALLY DRIVE MY BUS HOME!!!

So, here is what you should bring.
  • Vin/Odometer Verification Form (notarized)
    Title
    Proof of Insurance
    Conversion Affidavit
    Drivers License
    Weight Slip
    Patience (optional but recommended)
    $$$

Helpful links:
TL-10 http://www3.flhsmv.gov/DMV/Proc/TL/TL-10.PDF
TL-13 http://www3.flhsmv.gov/DMV/Proc/TL/TL-13.PDF
VIN and ODO verification http://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/btr/82042.pdf
Weight Slip Affidavit http://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/forms/BTR/82105.pdf
Conversion Affidavit - There is sample wording in TL-13 page 5

Hope this helps!
I have read about the TL-13 and have it ready, but what does the TL-10 add?
I'm researching it now but any real life DMV experience with it would be greatly appreciated!

I think the TL 10 is just in case the person working there has no clue. It has all the info.

This is a little off-topic, because not a skoolie, but is there any advantage insurance wise from converting an old Sprinter from a Florida "personal truck" registration to RV registration? I mentioned it to the woman at the DMV and she just gave me a look, like "I know you're not going there." She didn't otherwise answer.

I could see RV insurance being more affordable, as insurance companies typically assume the vehicles are only being operated part time. Kind of like antique vehicles. You should price it out before you go down that rabbit hole w/ the dmv.

Do you think the insurance company would answer a hypothetical question? Which companies would you recommend for that?

Insurance rates vary significantly depending on the location, driver and insurance company.

For me, here in Washington, RV insurance and registration are significantly cheaper than commercial for personal insurance and bus registration.

Your reasoning is correct. RV are typically driven very little compared to your daily driver. Since I have moved back to Maybury I don't put the miles on commuting like I used to. I get a discount on my truck insurance for low mileage. My agent asks me for my odometer reading twice a year.

Another insurance detail that is often missed: many insurance companies will let you suspend coverage if you are not driving for a while. I had mine suspend when I was ready to get the bus insulated. I called my insurance agent and she made an entry in the computer and poof instant insurance. When I got the bus home I called her back and had her suspend it again. IIRC: I do have to pay for a minimum duration. I think that it is a one week minimum. I spent less than $100 for bus insurance in 2019. Fortunately I had full coverage on the little bus when the tree fell on it. Once I get my Bluebird substantially completed I will either keep it insured when parked. Or, cut the last remaining tree down....

Angry What DMV office to registering my bus

Really need help I have gone to 3 tax office DMV places to register my bus.
No luck
I have signed title, signed bill of sale, notarized vin/ mileage affidavit, notarized conversion affidavit, Ins, and weight slip,
and I printed out the tl-13 info to bring with me.
I keep being told I can't register and change from bus to motor home.

I am in Panama City FL
Has anyone registered a bus near me? What DMV office?
Any suggestions?

Thanks

I had all the same thing you have, and it worked for me... after 3 tries. I just kept asking to speak to supervisors, until I was sent to a regional office to get an ok from someone there. Then it was back to the local office to carry out the titling.

One of those cases where it matters who more than what. Good luck.

Any and all Florida offices should be able to do it. However, you are "fairly" close to Tallahassee ... take all the papers you have to an office there. If anyone knows what "THE STATE" wants, it is the capitol.
