Episode 3 - Seat removal and
federal inspection prep
We were successful in bringing the bus into Canada from
Georgia. My goals now are to:
Satisfy the federal Registrar of Imported Vehicles (RIV) that
the bus meets their requirements to remain in Canada.
Pass a Drive Clean tailpipe emissions test.
Satisfy the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) that
I have converted the bus to a motor home so I can register
the bus ownership with them.
Get insurance from an insurer who does business in
Get the MTO to issue Ontario license plates.
The clock is ticking. The temporary plates and insurance from
Georgia will expire in a few weeks. I learned after spending
over $800 CAD for an Ontario safety inspection that is was
valid only for 30 days. I have to get the bus registered in
Ontario by then, or pay for another inspection.
Episode 3 deals with items 1 and two above - prepping the bus
for the federal inspection and getting a Drive Clean inspection.
It also covers my initial approach to seat removal - a necessary
early step in any skoolie conversion.
