Hiya all, Just a query for those of you who have a NSW registered troopy. I have a 97 model hzj75 and have just been having hassles with the stupid NSW greenslip system as to what class of vehicle it is. I notice on the certificate of rego from the RTA that the vehicle body type is listed as "ute" ?? Surely this is wrong, just wondering what body type it is listed as on other rego papers?? Thanks, Peter

Be glad it's not shown as a troop carrier or you would be classed as a bus & need quartly rego inspections & dearer rego & green slip insurance.

I was told by the RTA today that it shouldn't be a "ute" and that I would need a blueslip to ammend the change but they couldn't tell me what it should be classed as??? From what I can see on the insurance company sites it maybe should be classed as a hardtop? confused as ever, Peter

Hey Greymu

I'm in the same situation. I need to register the Troopy atthe end of June. Can you confirm that the RTA advised to go to just the ordinary BLUE slip workshop to change the catagory. I mean not a particular BLUE slip place. Also can you confirn "ARD" and "PVF" codes

would appreciate this advise

Regards jeff

I live in Victoria and have owned 5 75 series troopies over the last 15 years. 2 were 3 seaters and were registered as utes, 2 of them were 11 seaters and were registered as a bus and one 6 seater RV was registered as a Station wagon. Just depended on the seating arrangements. It didnt make any difference to registration costs or insurance costs either as I just told th einsurance company that they were toyota landcruiser troop carrier long wheel base vehicles.

dear jeff
i was at my local rta registry at penrith, the lady behind the counter saw on the rego papers that the shape was classed as sbs and that a rta inspection would be needed. she then gave me a list of blue slip inspection stations. for details of stations outside the penrith area call 132213.the mechanic i went to changed the seating capacity from 11 seats to 3 seats, he also changed the adr code to mc and the shape code to pvf. i hope this answers your questions. regards greyemu

Greyemu
Thanks for that mate I will do the same after I get back from my 23 day trip on the 25 june. (suffer) I was pretty impressed when i read your original post. I had been told that I would need an Engineers report costing $250 just to look into the vehicle and report "yep it's only a 2 seater!!! So I look forward to giving your suggestion a try.

Regards jeff
