I actually found a third party DMV agent/service that I run all my registrations through. I am going to have to give them a call and see what it will take to get a reg for this thing.

I have recently discovered a licensed VIN verifier in my area. Well worth the fee. Thank you for the info.

You mentioned a 2 stroke diesel, I can not advise if that makes a difference or not. Along with all paperwork, you need a VIN verification. This can be done at DMV, but as parking is usually bad at most DMV's I recommend calling your local DMV Office for this DMV from. Take you check book to DMV, as they will want to collect 'use Tax' and reg.

Hope this answers your questions.

For those of you with bus conversions, who do you recommend for insurance?

Any specific coverages to consider?

We have a perfectly fine DP, but I still find myself looking at conversions on Craigslist.

Subscribing and awaiting photos!

I really really really want an older conversion, the sound of the engine makes me happy...but in my price range they were potential full time projects requiring much more liquid assets than I have.
And...my husband is not mechanically inclined (think Big Bang theory) haha. Just replacing a vacuum bag is a challenge for him. . Fortunately for us and our 2004 Winnebago I know my way around a gas engine and RV stuff, I just don't want to have to do it. haha He is learning. I don't have to winterize the lawnmowers anymore.
