If it is a dealer you are buying from in Germany, get him to furnish some Z-plates for you, and insure it in Germany for the run to the ferry. As you arrive in the UK, phone AA Insurance and arrange insurance on the VIN, pending registration in the UK. Then, if second-hand, get it MOTd and registered. If new, then apply for registration with the VIN. Insurer should then be informed of new Reg so that they can reissue insurance docs.
Done it that way once with a car.
PS - you then send the Z-plates back to the authorities in Germany and the insurance there is cancelled.
No longer motorhoming due to illness, but always prepared to help by sharing any experience I may have.
