    I have an Iveco 16 seat Minibus with no Seats except Drivers....

    Ive just purchased after about a year of contemplating......It wasnt my choice but it fell in my lap and took a chance..

    Only one thing...... As it has no Passengers carrying seats (as in minibus seats) ....

    Can i insure it as a Van until conversion, obviously reclassing via DVLA as required and insuring it as motorhome after...

    Thanks from a newbie

    Welcome to the fun:party:

    Just check it wasn't registered as an ambulance
    It just causes road tax problems:crying:

    If it was an amby change it back to its original type
    I.e. Panel van PSV or passenger van if you intend driving it
    Before it's fully completed.
    Or wait and When complete to DVLA requirments
    then change to Motorcaravan

    And after 5 posts you become read only £15 passed to @Jim

    The camper we have was regestered as a minbus and we had it insured with 2gether. We changed it with the dvla but it doesnt make any difference to price or cover.
