I have a Ford Class 8 truck that I converted to a toterhome. It was previously registared as a farm truck (DOT tagged and inspected). I used the sleeper as the motorhome box. I gutted it and then built in a couch that folds into a bed, put in a small closet that has a toilet and also put in a microwave with a small refrig below. I took the 5th wheel off the back and built a "Western Hauler" style bed on the back with a gooseneck ball and tongue pull hitch. I then took pictures of the exterior and interior, had it re-weighed, got a motorhome inspection and a Form VI-30 (previously called a "Green Slip" to verify the vin #. I took all of this along with the old title and bill of sale to Guadalupe Co. Motor Vehicle Registration to get it re-titled as a Motorhome. They refused to do it. They said it was still a truck and had to be titled and registared as a commercial truck. I argued that it was a MH and no longer a commercial truck. They said motorhomes have special chassis' and bodies and this was still a truck.
I have owned 3 other toterhomes (a Kodiak, a Ford F700 and a KW T600), but all 3 were already titled as motorhomes when I bought them.
Is there anyone out there that has experience doing this in the state of Texas?
I need HELP!
