Hi from NJ...(so yes I need help)

Hey I tried to join once before but wouldn't let me use my email. so here is my BUS something I wanted from when I was like 5, just to drive around in and for the most part have for about four years now. but sadly she is still titled as a bus....and I just bought house which is great but....jerk-off neighbor doesn't want to look at a purple bus when they are having BBQ on their deck. and there was a hidden township ordinance that took them 3months to find a truck or bus weighing over 8klbs can't be kept on residential lot. so I need to get the re-titled as RV done there is nothing for RV. and she needs to lose some weight I wanted to shorten any way.

The easiest is to follow the steps in this thread. Title it as an RV in Vermont, bring the Vermont title to any NJ MVC office and transfer the title to NJ. Otherwise follow the below steps:

Bus – Motor Home (RV)
Foreign – Bus – Motor Home Page 1 of 3
Foreign Title Unit (R11/09)
General Information
1) Change vehicle type on Comp System : This Procedure will be followed when the MVC-Foreign Title Unit is notified that a bus was converted to a Recreational Vehicle (RV). The regulations concerning Certificate of ownership for used motor vehicles converted into motor homes is 13:21-20.5. This transaction can be handled through the mail or in-person at the MVC central office in Trenton. If approved, this transaction will be handled in 2 steps:
2) Issue a Replacement title on the Agency V3 System
* Motor Home Vehicle Type = 05 Required Modifications
 Remove most seats from the bus : In order for the bus to be converted to an RV, the customer must make the following modifications to the vehicle:
 Remove emergency lights including the side mounted stop sign
 Repaint the exterior of the vehicle (Cannot remain any shade of yellow)
 Install a permanent bed or sleep sofa
