Van/Motorhome road tax difference

When I change the van's description to a motorhome will it change my road tax? At the moment my 2003 2.5 102 is 180, my son's 1999 2.5 88 is 185, can't see why the difference of 5 when it's less powerful.

Hmmm... thats odd as our 2000 2.5TDi 102 Transporter just cost 185 to tax.

Does anyone know if the tax on motorhomes is going to rise in the same way as cars? Or are vans going up like cars. Great way to shut the economy down.

changing bodytype doesnt alter tax ,eg panel van, motorcaravan

tax is based on class- e,g private light goods,diesal car etc. this wont change

Because as with car tax after 2001 (51 reg) tax costs became based upon emission levels, whereas with vans this became practice in 2003 which could be the cause of the difference?

comercial class is 180/185 a year and private car (which mine is classed as) is 210 (52 plate 2.5tdi)
differance is an anpr car will do you for doing over 50 in a 60 zone if you are taxed as comercial where I can do up to 60 as I am classed as a car.
total ****** but thats the government for you
