    Hi I am a new member doing a transit minibus conversion. What I want to know are the proper requirements for insurance both home and abroad regarding water supply, gas regulations IE. metal enclosure etc. In fact a list of all relevant sections to totally cover all aspects.
    Thank you for any guidance.......Bruce

    I dont fully understand the question
    Insurance requirements have little or nothing to do with Gas / Water instalation
    Do you mean regulations regarding how to etc

    Hi Bruce do you mean what is required by DVLA to get your bus to Motor caravan ?
    Insurance wise it is a case of telling them what you have and taking pics and asking for a agreed value on your conversion.you may also require a gas cert, to say you have done it correctly from an approved gas fitter (worth getting it inspected if unsure-around £30/40 )
    I think it was either Geo or Jim (Scoctjimland )who last posted the requirements for dvla/vosa inspection but off top of my head you require-----

    seats that can be made into a bed
    sink
    2 ring cooker
    wardrobe-this can be a cupboard
    table ----------
    all should be fixed but this could be screwed or clipped to floor or walls :thumb:Tables can also be free standing

    Gas locker should have drop vents and be metal lined
    No doubt someone will have a full requirement list that they will post :BigGrin:

    shield requirements for self build camper

    http://www.shieldtotalinsurance.co.uk/self-build-motorhome-insurance

    trust the above helps beware you usually have 12 weeks to complete

    but you can make it comfortable after
    they just dont want to see a mattress and 2 buckets thrown in the back

    of a van so plan well saves a rebuild later :thumb:
