Be aware that if your Camper is over 3500kg, there are four environmental zones in Denmark. One is Copenhagen.

what are the implications,

do you pay or are you banned ?
You need a sticker that proves the vehicle is Euro 4 or better. Enter the zone without one, get caught, and the fine is €2700 at present.

Fully agree, it is confusing. I hope that you are correct. Having said that...

Referring to the sentence in red, if you look on the danish language version of the site, the word "campingvogn" is used. In Denmark, thats a caravan. They use the word "autocamper" for motorhome. So I'm not sure any more what the correct answer is. I dont fancy taking a €27000 chance though.

Why would a caravan be considered for emission control?

Think this explains a bit
Information About the Danish EcoSticker
The EcoSticker has been introduced in Denmark on 1st of November 2011. It is mandatory for diesel Lorries and busses with a total weight of 3, 5 tons and more. The Danish environmental EcoSticker is recognizable by its green colour and is assigned for only one vehicle: the sticker bears the nationality and the registration plate of the vehicle. The EcoSticker, bearing the mention “Low Emission Zone” is not transferable and is not valid for several vehicles. Each vehicle must bear its own EcoSticker. It is indefinitely valid as long as the vehicle’s registration’s number doesn’t get modified
We did Denmark last spring without any problems although didn’t visit any big cities.

If I read this correctly, then it it says to me that Motorhomes, irrespective of weight are exempt from needing the sticker. In other words, @Bailey58 is correct, and I was wrong in my earlier post. For that mistake, apologies. As the site is german owned, then I would assume that the original language it was written in is german, and the other languages translations from the original.

Go into the german language part, the sentence in red uses the word "wohnmobile" which means motorhome. Go into the danish language site, they use the word "campingvogn" which means caravan. My suspicion is that its just an incorrect translation.

Why would a caravan be considered for emission control?
They dont consider them for emission control, they exclude them. If, that is the danish language site is correct. It could be argued though that as a car pulling a caravan uses more fuel, emissions are higher.

Its just plain confusing!

Long time since I had a caravan but are there such over 3.5 tons?
Some of the bigger Airstreams weigh in over that. I would guess that many European ones do as well, if the weight of the tow vehicle is added.

I've spent the last month researching our (mainly) Norway trip and a week compiling a post looking for answers to various questions. Coming to a thread near you soon. :)

Even if I am in Scandinavia on a regular basis, I'll look forward to your post. It will be interesting to compare notes.

Back to the OP (although the info re exemption for motor homes in Copenhagen etc was really useful)
-heading to Norway we stayed at a Camperstop nr Lokken Galleri Munkens ( nice gallery of modern art). V convenient for Hirtsals and the ferry. Also liked Ribe camping and Skyttehusets camping nr Silkeborg. We tended to chose Camperstops with WC as we only had a portapotty in the camper so there were probably other options that would have done as well if you didn't need a WC.

Answer regards Eco sticker for Denmark direct from the horses mouth
No such thing until you weigh over 7.5 ton then you are classed as a truck

News to me! I took my van over for a 5 week work trip there in July last year. Stayed initially in the CPH central campsite which wasn’t even officially open when I arrived but being Denmark they were very helpful and happy for a bunch of vans to stay. No one mentioned anything about emissions stickers..
The weather last summer was baking hot and the site had very rudimentary but functional services - and I was staying in a van with insulation and a bed but little else and only intended to camp for a couple of days until I got sorted with an air B and B.. Absolutely no shade on the site but excellent bus route to central CPH close by.
I drove around Sealand every weekend in and out of Copenhagen, chatted to folk at work and this sticker was never mentioned.
