Can I register a day van as a camper?


I have bought a van in the UK. It's a day van with a pop top roof installed, it's still listed as a van on the logbook. I want to bring it over to Ireland and have it registered as a motor caravan. Is it possible to bring over a van and register it as a motor caravan?

Hi Darragh,

No, you probably won’t be able to. According to Revenue, to qualify as a camper van, a vehicle has to have sleeping accommodation, seats and a table, and — crucially — cooking facilities. As a day van, I think it still qualifies as just a van.
