Exporting a Motorhome from the UK to Australia 1.0

An experience of exporting a Motorhome to Australia and getting it approved to be on the road.

    In 2015 we decided to ship our secondhand Burstner Motorhome to Australia when we returned after spending 4 years touring in Europe. The conditions that were applied to us by the Australian Govt were for a returning Australian citizen who had owned and used the vehicle for more than a year. The landing steps were the ones that we had in New South Wales and the regulations for road approval were those for South Australia.
    This is not applicable for shipping a motorhome for touring and then returning. It would be a lot simpler if that is the case. If someone is planning to import into a different state then check their rules before commencing the process.
    I have included shipping and compliance costs.

    A good overview of successfully exporting a motorhome from UK and importing it into Australia which is complicated because of the myriad of rules and regulations we have in each of our states. As an Aussie I can appreciate the hoops you have had to jump through.
