Anyone imported a LHD recently?
Its been a couple of years (2) since I last imported a motorhome from Germany. I'm going to pick up a used Challenger Vany 114 soon so will be jumping all the usual hurdles, insurance (sorted I think), mutual recognition, headlights, registration etc. I was wondering if anyone has imported a LHD in the last few months and if there are any new hurdles to jump?
Ive noticed that on the new V55/5 there are now fields to complete ref. WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure, Phew!!) Also in terms of taxation a lot will depend on if the emission figures are on the Certificate of Conformity, or not. The van was first registered in Germany March this year, and has done plenty of KM so should be no issues with import tax.
Export plates are being sorted by the dealer along with the usual third party insurance. Ive had a quote from Adrian Flux for insurance on a VIN from point of entry to UK, but could do with a few other quotes, any ideas? Not had a lot of luck in that area.
