Nice one. Now its time to start enjoying it.
The road tax for a camper now is €95, went up in last budget. I'd say they'll let it alone for a little while more.

I had a nightmare with the whole conversion thing but got there in the end.

The next problem i had was getting the thing insured.

DONT go to DOLMEN

Go to STUART insurance and i recommend that to anybody getting a van converted.

DOLMEN want a hell of a lot more details and if youve got a brand new NCT/DOE on the van they still want an engineers report if the van is over ten years old or a conversion, not to mention the straps with the Gas etc etc etc etc, they gave me a right run around.

Go to stuart was sorted out with them quick and little fuss!

I've had had no issues with Dolmen. I think they could answer the phone more often and charge me less for insurance but apart from that I haven't a bad word to say against them.
