I would appreciate advice from anyone who has knowledge or experience of purchasing a small camper van on a small budget (around £20,000). We would prefer LHD, but second hand vehicles are relatively expensive in France. We have considered buying an unconverted van (VW T5 or similar) in France and then taking it back to the uk for the conversion. However, most vans seem to be diesel here and we would rather have petrol. If we went for RHD and purchased in the UK, would there be problems getting a certificate of conformity, as the sliding door would be likely to be on the wrong side for France. Also, would having a pop-top fitted complicate matters with the certificate of conformity?
Any advice would be most welcome. Thank you in advance
