    Has anyone does this before?

    If its an Irish reg passenger vehicle (not bus), no declaration to revenue is required.

    Grand so, how do I get the logbook changed to a campervan. Vehilce meets revenue requirements

    You need to apply to your local motor tax office with many of the same docs you would have sent to Revenue - SQI report, pics, Declaration of conversion etc. Some offices may want to see the vehicle

    What type of MPV are you thinking of? Does this mean the end of the Bongo??

    I did a bootjump type conversion on a Doblo (car not van). Car tax was only €290 so I saw no real need to convert. People were telling me I could have gotten it switched over to a camper on logbook and for tax purposes, but most likely not get insured after that.

    It was a converted caravelle - basically a transporter which had been an mpv rather than a van.

    Still have the bongo but we are considering moving up in the years and getting something with more creature comforts, although it will be at a lack of versatility.
