    Doesn't need one. He needs a C class HGV. He has removed the seats and it is not for hire. He can get it reclassified as a MotorCaravan easily enough.

    It's what I did with my Optare Metrorider.

    I think they are fools to allow press involvement. I think they may well now become foul of planning laws. :Smile:

    There are two ways they can get them


    The Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 if the land they are using does not have PP and a site licence and they are there with the owners permission.

    or

    Good luck to them I say.

    Disagree Jim

    We have found no problems with being open and honest about how we live.

    Yes you pay more for insurance but it is better to be covered than be left stranded if you are not honest about your circumstances.

    Perhaps I should have qualified my statement, .. tell no one who doesn't need to know.. Your insurer is a good example of someone who must know..

    So how many fulltimers pay council tax ?

    Shouting it out on the national press could draw unwelcome attention.. ie the council will probably chase them for council tax and as you mentioned, the may be in breach of the caravan act 1960 ..


    Like I say, best to keep quiet ..

    I wonder how much support they would get on this forum if they were 'travellers'? .. just a thought..

    I'm afraid the only one who can help you is an undertaker.

    It's Definitely a C. D/D1 not needed. I have just been through all this with my Bus. The Bus will be over 7.5T but they are not carrying passengers for reward.
