Converting a vehicle from LHD to RHD involves a huge amount of work. Whole new dashboard, new steering rack, all of the brake and clutch pedal assemblies have to be moved and the hydraulic lines re-routed. That’s many days worth of (very expensive) labour! Wiper arc’s are very rarely “handed” so I wouldn’t put too much inference on that.

It might be worthwhile contacting the converter and asking them what the various weights etc SHOULD be. You will need to quote the VIN number.

You haven’t actually told us the make and model of your MH, that might assist!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if it’s in a caravan!) I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Hav you had a thorough read of the V5? If used abroad before importation and first registration in UK it will say so. Somewhere near the bottom of the front page.
