    Thanks Taz.
    I have done it before, obviously specific designs and situations differ but in general I can't see a problem.

    I'm sure they will provide you with the internal measurements and you can measure them and satisfy yourself it's ok

    I too have a ford transit conversion. But it was a mini bus in it's previous life so I don't have the window problem. Bloody brilliant they are

Donít confuse max unladen weight with MTPLM (Maximum Technically Permissible Laden Mass). The unladen weight restricts the speed limits and the MTPLM is the TOTAL amount itís allowed to weigh with all your gear and passengers onboard plus fuel,water,gas etc. The plus of having a PHGV is the VED is currently only £165 annually compared to £240 for a PLG.
    The unladen weight will be the manufactures weight as it comes out of the factory with furniture,cooker,fridge etc, it wonít include awnings towbars solar panels, these all have to taken off your payload. Generally most vans that are 3500kgs have as little as 100kg payload upto 600kg. Payload is very important if you wish to stay within the law and within your insurance small print.
    I have got my V5C.
    LGV Panel van.
    Max permissible mass is 2800
    Mass in service is 1821
    I presume that payload is one minus the other 979. I need to know this as the insurance companies ask the question.
    I an still not sure about speed restrictions.
    I will get it weighed after carrying out any mods and with it fully laden. Not sure if this should include passengers as well.
    Any thoughts on this whole matter would be appreciated.

    Yes, it drives well, ain't too noisy, has a bit of oomph when needed. The turning circle isn't great but that is not the end of the world.
    I will be interested in the MPG. I suspect it will be reasonable with a light right but will go badly if I boot it.

    Yes, the payload is everything carried by the vehicle so that includes driver and passengers.

    I have just taxed my Transit so I have lost my pikey status.
    Oh, not quite, I have not insured it yet.

    I thought you needed insurance to tax it?

    Good point. I just have confirmation from the DVLA that it is now taxed. Perhaps the previous owner has not cancelled his policy yet. I suppose the government just grabbed the money as soon as I offered it.
    As I have no intention of moving it off the drive until insurance is in place I don't really care.
