    Hi Nigel. If you have some DIY skills and know what you want from your camper van then I would suggest doing your own conversion. It's a very rewarding thing to do, and you'll have a camper van that meets your exact needs.

    If you are not confident with DIY then consider having a professional conversion done, but they can cost a lot of money.

    Hi Evelyn.  If your vehicle is registered in the UK and you are fitting something of a real camper van (bed, windows, kitchen) then you should inform the DVLA.  They sometimes want to inspect the vehicle.  Insurance is cheaper for camper vans than regular vans.

    Hi,
    Do you know how it works in Australia for turning a van into a campervan from a legal point of view?? (certification, registration, standards, insurance...)

    Thanks
    Remi.

    Hi Remi,

    I am Australian, now in the UK, but when i was at home i travelled a fair bit in my Van, a mitsubishi express (L300)
    i just fitted a basic setup into the back and went on holidays.... never any problems.

    If you are planning a major conversion, and want to register the van as a campervan, rather than just using the van under standard registration (as many people do), the you should get in touch with the vehicle registration authority in the state of registration .... In Victoria, it's Vicroads, in New south wales it is the Roads and Traffic authority (RTA). other states just search on the net for vehicle registration.

    their websites will give you info about registration requirements and conversion compliance.

    Personally, i would not bother with any of that, just set yourself up, and go and enjoy yourself.

    Good Luck,

    Chris

    Hi Remi

    Sorry, I don't know.  I would suggest checking with the government department that handles that.  Is it DFAT?  Maybe it is different in each state?
