Will these changes to VED and the Type Approval Requirement mean more demountables in the UK

Sorry if that was a somewhat long-winded title, but this legislation and the possible consequences appear to have slipped through without being taken on board. Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) for new motorhomes Currently, most newly registered motorhomes pay Light goods vehicles (TC39) Vehicle Excise Duty...

Re: Walter King - the original demountable

Now i know nothing of the history of demountables but seeing this advert & reading Martin's reply & coincidentally reading an article on facebook that mention's "and eventually bought a vintage 1978 GMC Kingsley." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-48405631?fbclid=IwAR1cdOKxfGdZNDMktHy_NJvQ...

Re: Suntrekker with Wetroom

A bit of an update. After talking to Wonkywheel at Whitby and looking at his van I decided to fit a window in the blank wall. I purchased a Shield (Seitz copy) 750mm x 450mm Window. Shortened the kitchen shelf and this is the result. http://demountablecampergroup.com/download/file.php?mode=view&id=7...

Re: Want to buy first demountable
