Buying a caravan in UK and shipping to Australia

Recommended Posts

How do I find out the import duty on a new caravan shipped to Australia ? Is it worth the hassle to do his ?

there is an old blog post here:

but the guys still operate - so you could give them a call.

I think the conversion costs can stack up too - but you still might come out ahead

Have you checked prices of new vans here in comparison? Not sure of your plans but maybe better to sell there and buy once here. Not many European style vans here from what I've seen and perhaps differences in electrics etc?? Certainly the plug sockets.
