    Greetings All.
    Taking delivery of a LHD, imported motorhome in February. Researching like crazy for the last year and still learning things every day. We intend to tour Europe.
    I do not know if this is the correct forum for any questions/concerns I still have. Can anyone enlighten me.........?

    Welcome..Yes you're in the right place, although this for introductions, specific questions maybe in other areas, motorhome chat maybe?...everything ends up on recent post area anyway :)

    come on spill the beans, what is it and why:xwink:. importing pretty straightforward, fun starts with registering it with DVLA, which can be a hit of a hit and miss affair..have you got import pack from them.

    New Burstner, IC-Line Travelvan. Yes, bought it at a show in Dusseldorf, got the pack and initially was intending to import it myself. However, the process appears so fragmented and complicated that we opted to use 'Bundesvan', a UK agent. We are saving so much on the price (including numerous extras) that even the cost of his services make it very worthwhile. Even saves having to pay VAT twice and reclaiming !

    Thinking about it worse than the reality to be honest! I have just helped two first time importers (members on here) through the process, and they picked vans up last week and are registering them now, both went to germany and back the same day...Choosing the right dealer helps a lot, for instance not always necessary the pay VAT twice. Nick a good trustworthy choice though with a good reputation....Enjoy the new van :)

    Welcome - but don't forget the UK for touring. Depends where you live but for us in Devon we frequently nip down to Cornwall for a few days at a time but if you have longer then Scotland takes a lot of beating.
