    Right,

    I know we have people on here who have imported an RV and others who have looked into it.

    I'm looking to collate some info about these costs to put them in a spreadsheet to simplify the calculations.

    As far as I know it goes something like this:

    Cost of RV
    Shipping costs
    Duty
    VAT
    Cost of conversion to UK Elecs
    Cost of UK registration

    So, what have a I missed?
    What figures can we use?

    That's why I had my Monaco shipped directly from Baltimore to Liverpool even though I bought it in Houston, heard too many stories of damage when transhipped between ships in Zebrugge or Rotterdam, pleasantly surprized at the set up in Liverpool too excellent security compared to here in Southampton.
