Never tried it, but I know you have to have "some" land, and I guess have to show what your agricultural costs are. A jeep checks there 'boxes' better than a bus.

It's been awhile since I registered vehicles in Texas. My best recollection is that farm trucks were limited to use on the farm and limited trips to town performing farm work/business.

I am afraid that if you got pulled over in Texas while driving a converted bus with farm truck plates that the officer could easily tell that you are gaming the system.

pnw steve, thanks for the reply. I am really going to use it on and off the farm to haul sguare bales, cow feed and sit it in front of the homestead and sale fresh garden veggies, fresh tomatoes, orka , onions , cabbage BLACKEYED PEAS and other things from the farm.

thanks again. WE. south of Venus texas

That changes everything It should be fine as long as you send me some black-eyed peas and okra. People up here just don't understand good food.

Seriously, it sounds like you are going to be using it exactly as intended for a farm truck.

Post pictures for us as you progress.

That is a good question.. kinda curious myself... got a gut feeling you may run into a weight situation depending on how big your bus is.
