Campervans A campervan has at least a hob and a sink and will usually have seats which convert to a bed and possibly a bed in an elevating roof. A campervan does not usually have a separate washroom nor a facility for one but may be equipped with a Porta-Potti style toilet. A campervan will have either a fixed roof, an elevating roof or have a high-top roof. These can be converted from the small van market, for example from the Volkswagen T6 van.

Know which licence you need to drive each vehicle? Category B Anyone can drive vehicles that weigh up to 3500kg. Category C1 If you received your driving licence after 1 January 1997 an additional driving test is required. If you have a C1 licence already but wish to retain it once you reach 70 years of age, you will need to pass a medical examination.

Van Conversions with a Rising Roof A van conversion will include a kitchen area and a separate washroom including (or space provision for) a toilet and a basin and possibly a shower. These are usually longer than campervans and traditionally have more standing room. These are converted from the larger van market, for example the Fiat Ducato. Most will be high-top vans, although a growing niche are high top with an elevating roof as well.

Two-Berth Coachbuilt Motorhomes A coachbuilt motorhome’s body is built on to a chassis and cab. While the back of the cab usually opens into the habitation area, the outer body panels of the cab are retained. Generally, the habitation area utilises similar insulated body structure to that used by trailer caravan manufacturers. These vehicles have a kitchen and separate washrooms.

A class under 7 metres An A class motorhome does not use any body panels from the base vehicle manufacturer – the cab area is fully integrated into the habitation body, giving much more internal space and flexibility than a large panel van conversion or coachbuilt. The wider cab normally accommodates a drop-down roof bed which can be left made up ready for use, and the cab seats usually swivel to form part of a spacious lounge area when on site.

A class over 8 metres An A class motorhome does not use any body panels from the base vehicle manufacturer – the cab area is fully integrated into the habitation body, giving much more internal space and flexibility than a large panel van conversion or coachbuilt. The wider cab normally accommodates a drop-down roof bed which can be left made up ready for use, and the cab seats usually swivel to form part of a spacious lounge area when on site.

Know which licence you need to drive each vehicle? Category B Anyone can drive vehicles that weigh up to 3500kg. Category C1 If you received your driving licence after 1 January 1997 an additional driving test is required. If you have a C1 licence already but wish to retain it once you reach 70 years of age, you will need to pass a medical examination.
