    QUESTION

    This question was answered based upon current rules, regulations & statutes in effect on May 16, 2019

    I cannot find the requirements needed to register a bus into a camper.

    I have had no luck finding that information.

    ANSWER

    Irene Morrill:  I have no clue so I’m sending this to Kathy Cormier, CPPL, Member relations Advocate MAIA and our RMV expert

    Kathy?

    Kathy Cormier:  Is this a yellow school bus?  If yes, they need to paint the bus a different color, they need to remove the stop side arm and they need to remove/black out the flashing lights at the top of the bus.
    As far as I’m aware, there is no inspection by the RMV required.
    I hope this helps.

    Agent:  He wants to get it registered as an auto home. 

    Kathy Cormier:  You can only get an Auto/Home if there is permanent living facilities such as a sink and toilet.  If theses were added and they cannot be removed that that should work.
