Each DMV seems to have their own requirements for what they expect to see in order to change a vehicle type. Some states only require you to sign an affidavit, but most require a visual inspection. Our DMV wants to see that there are sleeping bunks, toilet facilities and kitchen facilities in order to change the title. Now, the thing is that some want to see more work done than others. For bathroom renovation, for instance, you might need the help of a pro instead of going DIY. But that depends on your skills. Several people on Skoolie.net have gotten away with a bar fridge and a microwave with a mattress thrown on the ground. If you are looking for very cheap car insurance, it’s important to get the vehicle type changed as soon as possible because the registration and insurance fees are considerably less. Not to mention that you can drive a housecar with a regular class C license, but a bus requires a Class B commercial license. In addition, I might want to get this rented out to tourists in the future (can’t say no to extra income) so I will need to partner with a travel agency. I’ve been seeing CityPass offers deals on Groupon. This is why we had gotten another car from All Car Leasing while we were getting around bus changed because not having the right license could have really given us a hard time with traffic officers.
Since we are going to be traveling a lot in our new ¨housecar¨ we are going to need some great travel insurance for wherever we go. Honestly, I think that the best option we have is to get SG travel insurance by AXA because they are a reliable company that you can trust whenever you are in need of help.
We have an appointment on Monday for our inspection. Hopefully, the inspector will give us approval with the small amount of work we have done. To prepare, we have the back bunk area built and mostly painted. The toilet is installed, sans walls, with the black water tank temporarily mounted. The stove is in temporary place and ready to be hooked into propane. On the other hand tehre is big pain that has been killing my back lately, I recently got a co codamol 30mg which is one of the best pain reliefs.
Anthony has also changed the front door to open more like a traditional door instead of being bi-fold. This allows us to put a regular locking doorknob. Yay! He first removed the bus hardware for opening the bi-fold door and then placed bars across the back of the door horizontally to keep the piano hinge in the middle of the doors from moving. I will upload a video so you can see it later. The door is beautiful and I love it.
