    Hi, Our new Renault motorhome is a Euro 5, which I understand is something to do with emissions. The dealer taxed the new motorhome, but my son said it should have been less than the £210 ish as it was Euro 5!

    Can anyone advise me how I can find this out, I have looked on the DVLA site but it is not really user friendly, is a motorhome regarded as a Light goods vehicle? If so I think it should have been £130.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    What is up with people, the dealers are the supposed 'experts' and taxed it, a call there would hopefully answer the question, what make such hard work of something :RollEyes:

    Off to do some more packing :thumb:

    Nothing is wrong with anyone.. this is supposed to be a helpful and friendly forum .. your attitude and posts are anything but that ..

    If you have nothing useful to say don't come on a thread and make snide remarks .. or make personal comments .. personally I've had enough of your insulting remarks.

    hate to say this but dealers are as confused as the rest of us VW per example the carravelle 7 seater minibus used to be under lgv tax but if you buy a new one its now plg the reason apparently according to VW is it s supplied as a window van with seats therefore plg tax but buy a ford torneo and same spec and its still under an lgv tax band

    I have checked all the sites quoted by funsters, and according to them all, my registration and motorhome do not exist!!!

    We received the Reg Number 10 days ago, surely it should be on the computer by now??

    Hi there Jim... none of my business of course, but "rising" to these sort remarks may just "feed the beast" so to speak and encourage more rudeness... :Wink:

    I am still sure there is something going on here that we don't know about...

    I cannot think anyone would join a site and be horrible to people just for fun... there must some other explanation... :Angry:

    JJ :Cool:

    You are SO right Daryl/Clare... it seems such a straight forward solution... :thumb:

    I have tried it myself...:Blush:

    ...and I do try, really I do... but some devil in me leads me to push that wretched button and I am being wound up again :Eeek: :Eeek:

    yes indeed.. but why should it be needed on a Fun forum ?

    . forum rules are quite explicit about this topic..

No offensive, insulting, profane or vulgar remarks are allowed.[HI] telling others to "get a life" or that they or their comments are "stupid" are strictly not allowed.[/HI] Insulting anyone even if your intention is not to offend, may well result in a ban. Should you be banned you aggree that there are no refund of the joining fee (£12) There are plenty of forums that allow you to be discourteous to each other, this is NOT one of them.

    Hi, I would not like to say about the euro 5 engine being cheaper, but I would have thought it should be. :Smile:

    But I know that our van is 3.800kg and it was £165 in March, just looked on the web site and got this:

    VEHICLE ENQUIRY Services Provided By DVLA:

    The enquiry is complete
    The vehicle details for**** are:

    Date of Liability 01 04 2012
    Date of First Registration 01 04 2007
    Year of Manufacture 2007
    Cylinder Capacity (cc) 2700CC
    CO2 Emissions 0g/Km
    Fuel Type Heavy Oil
    Export Marker Not Applicable
    Vehicle Status Licence Not Due
    Vehicle Colour WHITE
    Vehicle Type Approval
    Vehicle Excise Duty Rate for vehicle

    Please be aware that if the vehicle has recently been relicensed or a SORN declared, these details may not yet be updated on the vehicle record.

    If you think that the details on the vehicle record are incorrect please write to:
    VCS
    DVLA

    Including the incorrect V5C Registration Certificate for amendment.


    So its the same price as it was in March, I know that under 3.500kg cost more. :cry: Bob.

    Well, now I am totally confused or perhaps even 'stupid' (according to Swift)

    I have just spent 10 mins on the phone to the DVLA, going round and round automated answers until I spoke to a real person. She told me that the Euro 5 concession was only available from 1 October 2007 to 30th September 2009 ! I pointed out that our Renault was one of the first in the country to have Euro 5 and was she sure?

    Apparently all computers were running very slow and she could not confirm this she said to check on our log book, which of course we do not have yet. I asked why it was not registered on the system (It had been registered as new and taxed 10 days ago) and what would happen if we were pulled over by the police because if it is not on their system, it will not be on the ANPR system either. Her reply was "Well if you have your insurance and MOT I am sure you will be alright!"

    Priceless!!!
