Looking for a new motorhome is a nightmare. I am stunned by what I have found out and dont want anyone getting caught out!!!!!! Because we live in a controlled parking zone (CPZ) or permit parking area, we are not allowed a vehicle over 17.5 ft which restricts us enough - I dont think any of the new motorhomes are under 18ft. Apparently they are going to make the length restriction shorter too at some point. Now we are having to check vehicle registrations against the Low Emission Zone compliance as many motorhome are either not compliant, or wont be compliant from 2010. BEWARE !!!! if your vehicle does not comply you could get a daily charge of up to £200. The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) affects many motorhomes officially referred to as motorcaravans irrespecitve of whether they are used for commercial or private use. Cars, motorcycles and small vans (under 1.205 tonnes unladen weight) are not included in the LEZ. Check your vehicle To find out if your vehicle is affected, click here Low Emission Zone â€“ Compliance check If your motorhome or RV is affected click here Home | Transport for London to find out how to comply and understand what you can do to meet the LEZ emissions standards and avoid paying a daily charge. AND FINALLY .............. Beware about parking in parking/permit bays, as even if you purchase a permit or ticket, you may still get a penalty charge if you vehicle is too long (but you wont find the rules printed on any of the leaflets, back of tickets etc. CAN YOU TELL THEY DONT WANT MOTORHOMES IN LONDON !!!!!!
