Hi dudes here is the bumf from the site.The dude on the phone (L.E.Z.) recons my camper is registered as 5 tonne!
Yea im sure it feels like it with that silly little 1600 engine pushing it.He also said he got the info from DVLA.Not true coz as he said it is taxed as P.L.G (under 3.5 T)
Anyway check this out. The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) will affect older, diesel-engined lorries, buses, coaches and large vans (exceeding 1.205 tonnes unladen weight) and minibuses.
My instruction manual quotes a camper at 1770kg unladen weight with driver and 2400kg gross vehicle weight.
It will also include other specialist vehicles that are derived from lorries and vans
including; motorised horse boxes, breakdown and recovery vehicles, refuse collection vehicles, gritters, sweepers, concrete mixers, tippers, removals lorries, fire engines, motor caravans, ambulances and large hearses (over 2.5 tonnes) are also included.
From October 2010, a standard of Euro 3/III for PM for larger vans and minibuses
The following types of GB-registered vehicles will automatically be exempt from the LEZ. These vehicles will not need to be registered with Transport for London (TfL) and can be used within the Zone without being subject to the daily charge:
Vehicles designed and built for mainly off-road use, but which may be used on the road for limited purposes. Such vehicles include agricultural and forestry tractors, mowing machines, agricultural & farm machinery and equipment, mobile cranes and road & building construction machinery;
Historic vehicles (those constructed before 1 January 1973); and
Military vehicles registered in Great Britain.
