Should I upgrade a camper before import?

Hi,

I am considering importing a 2007 camper from Germany. It is rated '3 yellow sticker'; I presume that is for emissions. Should I pay to have it upgraded to '4 green sticker'? Would this have much of an effect on the extra charges added to the VRT?

Thanks

Hi Maria,

Nope, it’ll have no effect. Camper vans are charged on the commercial vehicle VRT rate, which is 13.3 per cent of the Irish market selling price, and the emissions don’t come into it.
