We're 99% legal!
The only thing we need to do to be legal to drive Errabundus Bus is paper work! Which is handy as we are only 32 days away from her first outing.
We need to flag down a police officer or drive down to the DMV and have them fill out a form stating that she is no longer a school bus, get some plates to slap on, and contact our insurance agent. When I called him earlier in the process for information he stated that in order to be insured as an RV we need to have a working toilet or sink and no more than 15 seats for passengers. Mainly, he informed me, to assure his underwriters that we are not driving a party bus like this.

We laid pad and carpet before leaving on vacation and Matt finished bolting down the seats yesterday. Only 8, so we're good there. I wonder if having a birthday party sleepover for 11 year olds would constitute as a party bus in State Farm's terms? We just won't tell him.
This week I will be shopping for the kitchen/bathroom flooring. I'm thinking bamboo. Matt is working on finishing up the closets as we speak so we'll have a place to store our clothes. There are still lots of trim work and details to see to but nothing of vital importance that will keep us from traveling next month.
The kitchen will be put on hold for a winter project
