Registering a Motor Home Conversion With the DVLA
LONDON, June 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Comfort Insurance has recently been looking into the possibilities of converting a van into a motor home, that is to say, taking a normal, everyday van and turning it into a mobile home. In order to carry out such a process, prospective motor home owners must seek approval from the DVLA.
Before the vehicle is classed as a motor home, it must be registered with all the correct documentation by the DVLA. Ultimately, by converting a standalone van to a motor home, a lot of money can be saved on Motor Home Insurance.
Comfort Insurance is a market leading Motor Home Insurance specialist with a history of providing the highest customer service and fantastic quotes. Peter Cue, Managing Director of Comfort Insurance, has been explaining: "Many people choose to buy a van, say an everyday Transit, in order to convert it to a motor home. To do so a lot of work needs to be carried out, either by themselves or an independent conversion company. The DVLA recommend that conversions will need to meet the internal criteria required for a motor home, however they do allow for greater flexibility when it comes to the external appearance of the vehicle."
Mr Cue went on to add: "We can see why people choose to convert normal vans as it can be an enjoyable project whilst also having the high possibility of saving money on insurance."
When applying to register your vehicle as a motor home, it's important to send the DVLA photos of your vehicle before and after its conversion. Only once the vehicle has been approved and registered will you be eligible for a motor home insurance quote.
