I have a hauler we use for motocross races. We vend out of it, but also can sleep in the front section. We are definitely not for hire. Does anyone know if NY offers a Class 8 conversion and if so, where can I find the criteria?

Thanks

Jamie Slaughter

You may be "NOT FOR HIRE" but you are certainly commercial if you vend out of the truck. As such you will be subject to a bunch of different regulations. You might want to check with Tim (fppf) over on the Escapees HDT discussion board.

What I need to know is the criteria to convert from Tractor to RV. Whether I am commercial or not is irrelivant at this point. I know tons of people who show up with Toy Haulers selling out of them as well, they would now be commercial. I am paying 8 grand in insurance just for trucking liability right now and my dad, who has a $590,000.00 Travel Supreme pays $2800 !!!!!! Something is wrong here. Also most of my travel is at the most 5 miles from my shop !!!! So, if anyone reads this and has info on how to make a Class 8 Tractor to an RV in NY please let me know !!!

Thanks for the help

you must prove to a nystdot inspection station that you have at least 2 of the 3 items that constitute a motohome kitchen, toilet, sleeping !
then they will allow it to be a motorhome registration !
but the vid # will keep on showing the thing as being a tractor and most insurance companies will not insure it as a motorhome !
I am doing this right now myself (in NY) and it is a pain in the ass and i even have a new MSO on the conversion ! call me if you want and I will tell you an eaiser way 8456263412 tony
