UMMMM?? What inspection?  Reckon I got shortchanged...didn't get no "inspection!"  Grin
Frank where're you in NC?  Either you or Kyle going to Dallas' get-together near Florence, SC? 
Regarding registration, Eagle says it all.  When trying to register a bus conversion.  Use the word "bus" and then it gets complicated. 
"Motorhome" is the operative word..  perhaps "Incomplete Motorhome."

Hello Frank,
Yep, I see you live down in Texas?   Regarding the inspection....tried to get a similar NC safety inspection...figured it was required. No one would do it.  Said that since it had air brakes, it didn't qualify for a NC inspection.. said it needed a DOT safety inspection.  Called some truck shops nearby and they said that motorhomes aren't inspected.  What the H.  I don't know.  Been driving it since 2001 without an issue.  Also, haven't seen any inpsection stickers on any airbrake RV either. 
Cheers, JR

JR, it seems they dont like to mess with buses much in NC, ive never been stopped in 19 yrs and ive been everywhere, i had the bus inspected in winston salem and also lexington, nobody ever refused to do it and nobody ever asked me what kind of brakes it has, they may never stop you but i like to be 100% legal so as not to give the insurance co any excuses not to pay in case of a problem. i do have a freind in nc that has never had an inspection. NC law says a motor home requires a reg inspection. Yea im in texas now, i enjoyed both north and south carolina the yrs i lived there. both great states to live in in my veiw
