    Really fantastic site. I have searched but can't find an answer to my question so I apologize if this topic has been covered before.

    I'm wondering if its possible to ship my American Ford F 250 with a camper shell on the back. I mean I know its possible and cost effective for me but realistically would I have difficulty driving it Europe? Just to be clear I am an EU citizen within EU drivers license and have driven all over Europe so my question isn't about the actual driving rather it's more of a registration and police question.

    my understanding is that I can legally drive the vehicle for 6 months before needing to register it in the EU country. I'm just wondering why more Americans don't do this. What difficulty would I have shipping my rig over there driving it around for 6 months?

    thank you again and my compliments for a wonderful website.

    Hi. is it a straight forward reclassing at a post office or a long winded affair to re tax a former patient transport 5 seater merc vito as a std PLG ?

    I will buying a Renault Megane Scenic in the next few weeks and plan to use it for ad-hoc camping. I'll be staying on established sites in the UK as well as using it as my everyday vehicle / loadlugger.

    I have been car camping in a number of cars (mainly hatchbacks and estates) so have a good idea of how to adapt the scenic. I'm just after a few pointers and ideas that I've overlooked.

    Many thanks,

    Hi John

    Will you be using campsites or wild camping?
    How long do you intend to camp in the Scenic?

    i would want a large van, is the VW t5 any good?

    Aug 24, 2010
  • Darren's picture

    The VW T4 and VW T5 vans are excellent.
    Also consider the Mercedes Vito van.

    If you want something bigger consider the Mercedes Sprinter, which is probably the most reliable of all of the vans.
    The Fiat Ducato is also popular. Whilst not as reliable as the Spriter, it is cheaper, and popular with camper convertors because it is wider and the handbrake is on the right-hand-side of the drivers seat, making it easier to pass through to the cab from the back, when a single passenger seat is fitted.

    how much would the fiat van and conversion cost?

    Aug 24, 2010
  • Darren's picture

    There is a cost to suit everyone.
    You could buy the van from £1,000 to £15,000
    The conversion can cost from £200 to £5,000
    It all depends on what you want and how much you want to spend.
    A decent van will cost about £2,000+
    If you do the conversion yourself you can do something nice for £500, but £1,000 - £2,000 will get lots of comfort and mod cons.

    Hi, i have just bought a long wheelbased transit minibus to convert. There are no seats apart from the two front seats as it was used for wheelchairs. I thought this would be ideal for convertion but i cant find anyone to insure it.The insurance brokers say they wont insure it because it has no seats. We need to insure it to get it home. HELP
