    On our vehicle registration form for the peugeot boxer recent self van conversion it is still claasified as a van, should I notify DVLA of the change to motorcaravan? Does it make any difference if I don't. It is insured as a self conversion after we submitted engineer report on it.:Eeek:

    Change the body type to Motor caravan, you can then legally travel at 60mph on A roads as opposed to the 50mph you can travel in your van currently.

    The DVLA need photos of before and after, one has to show the reg no:Smile:

    You should inform the DVLA and they may wish to inspect or have proof (photo,s)from your self that it meets the requirement to be classed as a Motor home


    Your insurance will want to know because you have changed the use of the vehicle, from van to motor home. In fact they may not want to insure it, and you may find yourself hunting for one of the few companies that will cover Self builds
