    What's my van worth??

    I sent off to have my Kombi reclassified as a camper today. Started off with the info and sample letter here: Converting a vehicle into a motorhome - GOV.UK and then added in some photos and receipts for the bits / work done. Hopefully it will be back soon and I can drive at car speeds again.
