  2. General T4 Chat
    I've been searching the forums for info on LEZ in London - but can't find anything, so I'm starting one here. I have a 1994 T4 campervan - bought it last week, drove it back home - within the LEZ of greater london. Having paid no attention to the LEZ assuming it related to lorries, I didn't...

    ... and others aren't? There appears to be no distinction between those that are taxed as light goods vehicles and those that aren't - is it as random as it would seem?... I have assumed that all Caravelles with up to 9 seats are classed as cars, which is great so far as the LEZ is...

    How Can A Camera Tell What This Is? They all look the same, my Gran always said, bless her. So, is this a Caravelle, Transporter Panel Van or Transporter Window Van based DIY camper conversion? Or is it an ex-works California Freestyle? Is it petrol or diesel, does it have 4-cylinders or 5...

    Having just bought a second hand 2.4Ltr LWB 1995 Camper I was stunned to discover that I will be charged £100 per day to drive my van in London in 2.5 yrs time. http://www.tfl.gov.uk/roadusers/lez/default.aspx I live in London and this means even if I want to leave town for a 'quick weekend...
