Conversion Description

The van body type is listed as a minibus. There have been no alterations to the external appearance.
There is no need to alter this unless you alter the external appearance.

This conversion meets all DVLA internal features required for a campervan.
You will receive a letter stating Motor caravan refused on external appearance only.

If you add an awning and decals ( stickers) to make it look like a campervan you will get motor caravan approved. This is not a requirement and does not effect your insurance for many insurance companies.
I can recommend an insurance company to you.

The current gross weight is 5000kg but can be downgraded to 3,500 this can be done when changing the ownership details.
Although not yet weighed previous vans I have converted of this exact model have all been weighed well within the weight requirements for downgrading.
I can guarantee it will be below the requirements for downgrade. We can take the van to a Weybridge for a certificate before collection.
You can still drive the van while you wait for your downgrade as long as you can show you have applied and the van is the correct weight.
You only need to downgrade if you don’t have a C1 driving licence. If you do have C1 then please disregard this section.
