I think you are correct on all points.

It should be "motorcaravan" and Timberland should have ensured that was it's body type when it was registered.

At present I think you are in effect driving a "commercial vehicle" rather than a "motorcaravan" and so subject to different speed limits, different MOT class and possibly a different VED taxation class.
