- T6 Beach 150
You are correct in saying that my current Beach is an MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) and your SE is a Campervan. That is how they are classified by the DVLA. The pre sale photos of the "empty" Beach in post #119 were of my previous but identical seven seat T6 Beach. That vehicle was/is classified as a campervan by the DVLA! As far as I can see the only reason for my current Beach being classified as an MPV is that under the new regs any cooking stove needs to be fixed to the vehicle.I think @Auberg-ine has done that on a number of occasions.
Comparing photos of an empty Beach, mislabelled as a campervan, to a properly equipped Ocean correctly labelled as a campervan, proves only one thing. You have a MPV that you can take camping when it's loaded up and I have a campervan.
However, were I to replace my current MPV Beach with a T6-1 Beach "Camper" with it's single pop up stove I would again have a "campervan" under DVLA rules. An important technical point perhaps to the DVLA but not in the context on this discussion. Given your comments I doubt if you would consider even the T6-1 "Camper" a proper campervan since there is no practical difference between that and my current van.
