To solve the "who converted your coach and when questions".  Make up a name ie: Joe's Superior Coach Conversion, go to the courthouse and file a statement of operating under a trade name with the registrar of Deeds.  Make a plate for your coach that gives the manufacture, address, and date converted.  So, you have a 30 year old chassis with a two year old conversion. Everyone is happy and it is legal because the company name can be tracked back to you.    this based on information I have experienced in North Carolina.

Legally one cannot fly without insurance.

I've been flying since 1965 (my family had airplanes instead of speedboats).

I've never had insurance.

As Reagan said, the problem isn't so much what we don't know, but what we know that isn't so.

Actually, the problem is when someone comes in with an old skoolie or transit, then bugging out without taking their bus.  Evidently this is a worse problem than when someone comes in with a trailer that they abandon, because of the expense of dragging the hulk away.  By banning coaches, they avoid the problem -- but if you show up with a beautiful-looking rig, they figure you're going to be taking it with you when you leave.

If you just want the sticker Skip I'm sure any RV salvage yard could supply you with one.  And on the off chance that some RV park someday wants to look at your certification it will likely be some minimum wage security guard doing the looking. 

Not just RV salvage, but also outdoor storage and tow/impound yards.

They used to be a screw-on badge.  The newer stickers can be removed with a little care and some Goo-Gone (check to make sure it won't eat the paint finish from the sticker), or if mounted on a flat spot, cut out around it then rivet the plate in the proper place.

Many states require finacial responsibilty when operating an aircraft just like your bus. This applies to part 91 operators as well as part 135. It's just good sense to have it. This is just one states law. South Carolina:

SECTION 55-8-50. Requirements of policy or bond.

(a) A policy or bond is not effective under Section 55-8-40 unless:

(1) Issued by an insurer or surety company authorized to do business in this State; or

(2) Issued by an insurer or surety company not authorized to do business in this State found by the agency to afford adequate protection and which has filed or shall file with the agency a power of attorney authorizing the Secretary of Commerce to accept service on its behalf of notice or process in any action upon the policy or bond arising out of such accident.

(3) If the accident results in bodily injury to or death of a person not a passenger, the policy or bond provides coverage of not less than one hundred thousand dollars because of bodily injury to or death of one person in any accident and three hundred thousand dollars because of bodily injury to or death of three or more persons in any one accident.

(4) If the accident involves an aircraft being operated for hire and the accident results in bodily injury to or death of a passenger, the policy or bond provides coverage of not less than seventy-five thousand dollars, because of bodily injury to or death of one person in any one accident and not less than seventy-five thousand dollars multiplied by three-fourths the number of passenger-seats in the aircraft because of bodily injury to or death of two or more persons in any one accident, limited to three hundred thousand dollars in any one accident.

(5) If the accident involves an aircraft not being operated for hire and the accident results in bodily injury to or death of a passenger, the policy or bond provides coverage of not less than one hundred thousand dollars because of bodily injury to or death of one person in any one accident and not less than one hundred thousand dollars multiplied by the number of passenger-seats in the aircraft because of bodily injury to or death of two or more persons in any one accident, limited to three hundred thousand dollars in any one accident.


(6) If the accident results in damage to or destruction of property, the policy or bond provides coverage of not less than one hundred thousand dollars because of damage to or destruction of property in any one accident with the exception of the following property which is exempted from the security required under this chapter: property owned, rented, occupied or used by, or in the care, custody or control of the owner or operator or carried in or on the aircraf

That's a good question, Niles.

I would presume that they were a member at one time.  They are not in the current directory.

More importantly, I know that most of the major Prevost converters are (quite deliberately) not in compliance with several of the published RVIA standards.  Not that it matters to them -- few customers walking up with $1M+ are going to do an about-face if they don't see an RVIA sticker on the coach.  These big boys don't really see any value added to their business in belonging to the association.
