Re-Registration of your Campervan Conversion
Once you have completed your campervan conversion you have the option to re-register you vehicle as a ‘Motor Caravan’. You may be put off by having your beloved camper being described as a caravan; however re-registration does have certain benefits:
- Cheaper Campervan Insurance
- More specific insurance cover including greater contents cover
- Cheaper ferry prices
- Cheaper M.O.T
There is no legal requirement to have your vehicle re-classified but due to the above it is probably worthwhile. This will change the category of vehicle on the V5C or log book as it is commonly known.
There are a number of requirements or ‘characteristics’ that the vehicle must have to qualify for reclassification as a campervan conversion.
