    I'm thinking of going over to buy one, are you just thinking of importing direct? I want to save the import tax (so staying for 12 months)


    * RV Cost = Whatever
    * Shipping = $3,000-$5,500 depending on overall cubic metres of RV (37ft will be $5,500)
    * Shipping Insurance = 1.1% of declared value (optional)
    * Shipping Agent Charges in UK = £150
    * Import Duty = 10% of RV Cost PLUS 10% of Insurance PLUS 10% of Shipping Cost
    * VAT = 17.5% of Total Import Duty figure
    * UK Registration = £50
    * UK Road Tax = £165 max (12 months)

    * Someone suggested adding 29.2% to the cost of the RV to get a VAT & Duty total figure (remember you are adding in the shipping and insurance too)

    Hi Brenda
    I was thinking of staying awhile but i heard recently that you only have to own one for 6 months to be able to bring it back tax exempt but i've not veryfied that

    That's a new one if it is true. I doubt it. You have to own it for 6 months to import yourself but a year to avoid the tax, so I believe

    Paul UKRV has avoided the tax by staying in the States but its not that easy but can be worthwhile and have a great holiday.

    I was there for a few week only and it was a blast:Wink:

    Jacksonville to Southampton £2850 get a shipping agent this end.

    JSW guided me through the whole process:Wink:
