Knocking on wood, haven't received anything from Progressive, coverage is still active
I think my "luck" was due to the fact the bus' VIN pulled at the DMV as a "truck", not a bus.
As other S.Floridians were watching this thread wanting to know how it all went...well...this is what it was:
If you're in the P.Pines area, i highly suggest going to the FL title & tag on Palm Ave &Taft st. (right next to a Domino's). I was in & out of there in total one hour time (i had to go back home for more documentation).
Go there with:
4.any supporting document for the conversion (receipt of anything you bought for it, even take some pictures if conversion is finished!)
5. this affidavit:
In the case of an individual converting their own vehicle and requesting to have the identity changed on the title in order to have it registered and licensed as a recreational vehicle, the customer must submit an affidavit to the tax collector. The affidavit must certify that the unit has been converted to the extent to include one of the aforementioned items to qualify it as a recreational vehicle.
This is to certify that I, ______________, owner of a (Year) __________, (Make)_______, (VIN) ___________________, hereby request the vehicle be classified as recreational vehicle for the following reason:
( ) Installed 110 volt electrical wiring
( ) Installed LP gas piping
( ) Installed plumbing system
I added my signature block at the end of it, and offered to sign the form in front of the lady, but she was OK with the form unsigned.
6.$$$ ! with a direct print by monday, i paid ~$250 (they do take credit, 3% extra charge)
Might be a good idea to not mention it is a "bus"; maybe just say it's a "large van"
I went saturday, and in about one hour i was back home! IMHO, that is much better than to even attempt to make an appointment with the DMV!
By monday, the new title listing our bus as "MH" had arrived!
Hope this helps someone for a smooth transition!
Almost time for
