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)

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
