New member and question on Dutch "camper" registration

Hi There
I've been a (fairly) silent lurker on the forum for a while, so I guess
it's time to give a short introduction. I've recently moved to the
Netherlands from South Africa. In South Africa I owned a FJ75 troopie.
I bought the troopie in a well used (read abused) second hand condition
from the previous owner who used her to shuttle clients to his lodge in
Zambia. Inbetween short overland trips over a period of two years I
restored her to a mechanically reliable condition ready for my (planned)
big trip through Africa. Well, to cut a long story short, my plans had
a sudden change and I decided to move to Holland at short notice and had
to sell the troopie (quite a traumatic day to see her being driven away
by a stranger...)
I am now looking at obtaining either an HJ73 or an HJ75 here in
Amsterdam. Since the HJ73's are significantly cheaper and more
frequently available, I would prefer a 73 over a 75 (the 73 would have
more than ample space for all the gear I need on overland trips).
It appears to me that here in Holland it's possible to register a
vehicle under a camper license ("camper kenteken") which would result in
a 75% saving on annual licensing fees. One of the qualifying
requirements for a camper license is that the vehicle must have a bed
installed. This is no problem for a troopie, but space can become a bit
of a problem in an HJ73 (not sure how long the loadbay is in a 73, but
for licensing purposes the bed needs to be at least 1.8m long).
I was wondering if there's anyone on the forum with experience of the
Dutch system who could help with the following questions:
- Would the licensing authorities accept a rooftop tent as a bed for a
camper?
- Any other tips/advice on converting a 73 into a camper (other than
going the innovation camper route)
Cheers

Paul,
I suppose you aren=92t interested in a permanent bed of 1.8M, but just need it
for licence purposes?
If the 73 doesn't have enough length could you fold the passenger seat flat
to allow the "bed" to extend into the front?
(Or extend the "bed" out of the tail so you would be "sleeping" with your
feet out the back.)
Just ideas.

Hey Malcolm
The 1,8m bed is purely for licensing purposes. I'll either be sleeping
in a tent or a rooftop tent. Being 1,92m tall, I won't get much sleep
in a 1,8m bed ;-)
I was also thinking of building the bed to extend over the front seats
as you're suggesting - the only drawback is that, even with the seats
folded down, there won't be much room to move between the bed and the
roof...
I think they require the bed to be inside the vehicle, which would rule
out the second suggestion. Let me go and google a bit more to find
out...
By the way - what does it cost to register and license a cruiser in the
UK? It appears that 80 series cruisers are significantly cheaper and
there appears to be many more on the market in the UK than here in the
Netherlands. I've been playing with the idea to buy and register a
vehicle in the UK.

Paul,
Licensing in the UK would be =A3175, the problem might then be insurance in
Holland on a UK licensed vehicle and so on. No cheap ways to do anything
today!
Link to licensing web site: http://www.dvla.gov.uk/vehicles/taxation.htm
There might be more 80 series available in the UK, although I wouldn't have
thought it was so. RHD might be a disadvantage. I wish we had as many 40 &
70 series as Europe.
Good luck with the search.

Enroute to Frogs Island by ferry tonight to get an ARB Winch bumper fitted - the first step in getting my HDJ81 ready for next African trip.
Hopefully will make it to Oxford - a worrying vibration noise started coming from the drive shaft this morning. The bush mechanic Job I got done in Marakesh at Christmas might be coming undone!!

Hey Niall
Would you be able to take a package to Frogs for me.
I bought a steering box just last week that they said was reconditioned but
I got a bit suspisious when I saw rusty fluid coming out of it .
So I asked a few questions and it turns out to be just your normal breahers
steering box with no work done on it at all. I wonder what would have
happened if I didn't ask them about it.
So I lucked out again, story of my cruiser exploits really.
So If you can great and if you cant no bother at all.

No problem John
Can you get it as far as Clondalkin by about 6.30pm? I'm leaving tonight straight from work on the 9pm sailing
Or if you need a replacement picked up - let me know
Niall
Hey Niall
Would you be able to take a package to Frogs for me.
I bought a steering box just last week that they said was reconditioned but
I got a bit suspisious when I saw rusty fluid coming out of it .
So I asked a few questions and it turns out to be just your normal breahers
steering box with no work done on it at all. I wonder what would have
happened if I didn't ask them about it.

Hi Niall,
Welcome aboard.
That's keen. If you want to meet up on the way up or way down I'm not
that far from them and am around tomorrow.
What do you mean by driveshaft? Are you referring to the propshaft
running from the transfer case to the rear/front axle or the halfshafts
in the axles?

Thanks Julian
Am referring to the propshaft running from the transfer case to the front axle. Should be just the universal joint...
Will be put to the test this weekend - from Oxford we're blazing a trail to Mooreland Adventure Sport in Scarborough - always wanted to get behind the wheel of a Unimog!
I'm out the gap in a few minutes - send on your number to 00353876431774 & i'll give you a buzz - making plans as we go so we might be able to meet up for a coffee or pint for the craic
Keep truckin'
Niall
