Hello - NEW to group and EXCITED to start

My wife and I are excited to get started in converting an old school bus into our own SKOOLIE !!! Doing a lot of research right now before we pull the trigger to start, i.e, purchase the bus. Could use some HELP in finding how to obtain insurance in MICHIGAN for school bus prior to conversion and then after conversion...ANYONE have valid suggestions or advise? I have called Progressive both personal and commercial departments and both said they could not insure. HELP !!!!

Thanks, I called them at first they said no problem after conversion but need some sort of commercial for personal policy for before, but the commercial dept wasnt going for it. BUT the original agent called me back and said that they would underwrite coverage for before conversion and then after when it is considered a "RV". After several phone calls with different companies and hours of searching online, finally got confirmation that insurance in MI is possible!!!

I have Allstate and just emailed my agent when I first found out I was purchasing the bus. They got back to me in a couple days and said no problem. $300 year
