    My van is a 2001 Autocruise Impala, based on the Peugeot Boxer chassis and, now that I am living in France, I am required to re-register it here to comply with the law.

    This requires a Certificate of Conformity but, as yet, I have not received any answers to my queries and wonder if any of you jolly nice chaps out there can come up with any new ideas. Thanks in advance for the flurry of recommendations I am about to receive !

    who have you spoken too about it ?

    is it a standard Peugeot chassis or is it on an Alko extended chassis ?

    I have tried Autocruise direct a few weeks back but, as yet, no answer.

    The Chassis is a Peugeot Boxer 350MWB and yes, it does have an Alko chassis. Extended or not is beyond my technical skills but, as the van is 7.5 metres long, it may well be extended. Thanks

    try autocruise again explaining the problem and may be worth ringing instead of email.

    Tel 01482 847332

    failing autocruise' replying, you could go direct to Alko-Kober quoting the chassis and registration numbers.

    Tel 01926 818500

    this will only certify the weights on the alko plate though...not the conversion.

    they will have the chassis convertion on their files but this route will cost you....dont know how much though.

    We tried registering a 2006 Lunar Telstar on a Renault chassis we had all the paperwork. CoC for habitation side and a European Whole Vehicle Type Approval for the Chassis.. We went through the DRIRE (DREAL) in Limoges and they wanted us to change the rear light clusters, Gas connectors, internal plug sockets, headlights and the speedo and when all that was completed they would then inspect it to see if met the French regs.......:Angry:

    In the end I took the van back to the UK where it was sold and bought a French registered one here.

    The problem you will have that 'AutoCruise' who built the van went bust.

    The new AutoCruise is now part of the Swift Group and they only bought the name.

    We had problems trying to get our Hymer into the french system, we tried the DRIRE first and they more or less told us to take it back to England and sell it, we managed to get all the paper work, then our French friend took us to the Sous Prefecture and told them that all we wanted was a change of address they then gave us the documents to get the french number plates, since then we have registered a car and a van the same way. good luck Bambi 2
