Commercial CVRT with a camper conversion 70% complete

For CVRT testing, are there strict rules & regulations on what is/isn't classed as a commercial vehicle?

I have a VW transporter and currently 70% through the conversion to a camper. Unfortunately, my CVRT is up and I need to get it tested. Is there anyway the tester can fail this as it is now ''classed a camper-van'?

I need this van as an everyday vehicle for now so I can’t just leave it off the road until the conversion is complete.

In most cases there will be no issue, I have tested my van with the interiors removed, have heard isolated cases of there being issues at particular centres. As an SQI is required to declare a vehicle a campervan, if the CVRT tester claims it not to be a campervan, I would be requesting his SQI status and just getting them to assess the safety and roadworthyness of the vehicle.
