It is not easy but proof of residence is required, although not a Carte de Sejour, yet. If you apply before January 1st you are in the EU, after that not. The proof required of residence is a services bill or attestation from EDF - downloadable from their site for your account.

You need the HGV CT first, proof of original purchase by you, proof of import from local tax office and can then start, but insurance is harder as over 3.5t is not covered by most insurers. Ask in a Camping Car shop as they often have links.

Good luck, but start now with the official I,port papers then the CT even if at present you are still using Vritish insurance - not possible once French registered, but the registration process does take time....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
