Question Short term car/RV insurance

Hi Skoolie folks,

so, we finally bought a bus!

Before shipping it to Europe, we want to visit the US picking up the bus at the dealer and driving it to a garage where a roof raise will be performed.

The dealer can provide us with temp tags valid for 9 days in total. Also, the bus got re-classified to a motorhome already so that I can drive it without having a CDL. If that's important: dealer is in WA state, also the title change has been done by WA.

Last thing I do need: a car / RV insurance. I did some research now for quite a while, but without luck. And being not from the US I don't know really what I need to look for.

Do you guys have smth like a short term insurance? In Germany you can get a car insurance only for a couple of days. That's what I would be looking for.

Any kind of advise is highly appreciated!

If you can't find temporary insurance, get a cheap yearly policy on a monthly payment plan. Just cancel when you don't need it anymore. I had to do this and I paid a $50 down payment and canceled the following day after getting the bus home.
