Importing LC camper to uk permeantly

Can anyone advise on process, and pitfalls of trying to import a 2003 LC euro 3 into uk from Germany, it has been professionally convertied into a camper van (table bed , cooing etc) in Germany and meets TUV , the National vechile inspection standard, however I am not sure beyond usual fog lights, speedo etc what I need to be worried about or need to do to get it in to the uk , and onto plates.

Once in , we will then start travels from the uk, Europe 1st then further afield.

Any advice, on how, or companies that can assist gratefully received.

I have never done a car or van but know bikes from another EU country are pretty straight forward, I think this is the relevant information you are looking for and there should be no need to employ anyone else to do it.

Thanks. I’ll take a look, although I am concerned that it is modified ( camper addition) which may make it more difficult to simply import as a std car.

Red face Import

Hi Farnley

I imported my van from Norway, just swapped the fog light for reversing light, took it to the inspection place in Bristol where they checked everything worked and that was it, I am not sure you even need the speedo in miles now, but check with test centre.

Good luck

Bruce
