Ruthi, Dallas and I used to live in Florence, SC.  We were shopping at Walmart one day and saw a bus.  We went back a few days later and it was still there.  We almost stopped to check out the owners and now I wish we had because I'm betting it was you guys.  I hate we missed that opportunity.

Hey, did you notice the colors? Probably was us. We are at the new stores 1 day, everynow and then, 2, if there is a problem. We use to have to be at the new ones several days, but that changed. Remodels we are at 5 days or so. We go anywhere from Kentucky, va south through Fl. and over to La. So, you never know where we may show up. Hopefully any bus nuts see us, they will stop and say hi. We may not be in the bus, if not, we are in the hair salon.

Sorry, that was more than 5 minutes ago so I don't remember.  We have been gone from that area for over 2 years though.

Ruthi,

It may not matter. I spoke to a buddy of mine who bought an '88 MCI in New Hampshire, from a tour company, so the bus was titled in NH as a seated coach. He says all he did was tell the folks at the Georgia MVD that it was a motorhome and that's how they titled it. No hoops to jump through. He did it at the Motor Vehicle Division Headquarters, which is located up here near the airport. You'll be able to do it at your local tag office.

He did have to pay the sales tax, but you won't, since you bought it from an individual.

Thanks Bob, that is good to know. I know some states put ya through the ringer to get it done. Hubby, Ken, thinks that it is titled as a passenger bus or coach.  ???  I really hope it all goes well this time at home, and get it at least usable. For all the miles we do, we really need the advantage of a little better gas mileage. Now, if we can find someone to make us an offer on the gm we currently drive, it will be good. ;D

We are about an hour and half se of Atlanta, 30 minutes from Macon. As I said before, we will be home starting Suday for about month and half. Anyone coming this way, stop by, we have room to park.

I am in the suburbs north of Atlanta, but I'm just a wannabe at the moment.  Although, I have been getting interested in this one:

It is in a tow lot I drive by every day and it seems the team is having some financial trouble.  Trying to convince them they need to divest themselves of it at a LOW price rather than letting it accumulate storage fees.

You won't pay sales tax, but you will have to pay a personal property type tax when you get the tag, based on the book value of the bus. I mentioned insurance because your agent will have to have it entered into the state computer base before you can get tags; if it's not in there, even a paid up policy from the company will do no good at the tag office. The tag will expire at the end of the birthday month of the FIRST name on the title. If that falls at a bad time, like December, title it with the other owner's name first on the title. The rest of the process is simple, normally.

That is fine. Just wanted to know if it was going to be a long drawn out process. Thanks

With our current bus, when we moved to Ga. and got tags for the bus, we showed them the insurance for it and got the tags. After that we renewed 2 times, and the third time they told us they would renew it, but we had x amount of days for our ins company to get it in the computer state files. We were shocked that it wasnt done. Anyhow, we made sure the ins. got it put in right away. Maybe, just because we are small town. ::)

I am in GA north of atlanta in the little town of Dahlonega. my Eagle came from alabama and had a title. I did a VIN verification with the sheriff because my Eagle only has a five digit VIN. My new GA title just calls it a bus and the registration lists it as "passenger car/light trucks" under classification. as for the title issue in GA if the vehicle is more than 25 years old AND the chain of title has been broken (a paper title has been lost and only the registration is used to ID it) then no paper title is issued. no matter the age if you have a paper title in hand to transfer then the state will issue a new title. also on vehicles over 25 years (like my bus) then it carries no real value and the tags are $20. hope that helps.

Yep, we have a title, so I guess it is just a matter of going to the mvd, and getting it reg, as a rv title.

My old 58 4104 still has a Mo title and is registered  in Ga as a MH and has antique or hoby tag.  No Ga title. 
Enjoy your ride
