Instead of wasting time and effort dealing with the DMV here, I instead used a private vehicle registration service to change my bus's initial registration of AUTO (BU) to the much-needed MH. The company's owner saw that I had completed enough of the required interior changes to justify its new title, and she took a few photos to substantiate the change. I paid her money, and a few weeks later I had my new Pink Slip. Easy!
The impetus for my doing this was because CARB had placed a hold on re-registering my bus in California due to it being non-compliant, and at the time only Motorhomes were exempt from their restrictions. However, the rules have recently changed again, and not for the better...
