Episode 3 - Seat removal and

federal inspection prep

We were successful in bringing the bus into Canada from Georgia. My goals now are to: 1) Satisfy the federal Registrar of Imported Vehicles (RIV) that the bus meets their requirements to remain in Canada. 2) Pass a Drive Clean tailpipe emissions test. 3) 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. 4) Get insurance from an insurer who does business in Ontario. 5) 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. Click the image below to see the episode on my YouTube channel.
