DVLA Guidance on Motorhome Conversions
Before carrying on with our story about our Campervan conversions we would like to make you aware that the official DVLA Guidance on Converting a vehicle into a motor caravan (motor home) was updated on 7th August 2020
The body type does not affect the insurance category of the vehicle, or have any effect on speed limits or other legislative requirements. It is only used for establishing vehicle appearance and identification.
It is important to remember that even if the vehicle’s body type is not changed to ‘motor caravan’, the vehicle can still be used for this purpose as long as the keeper is satisfied the converted vehicle meets the required internal features for motor caravans.”
