Hi All
We have just purchased a Canter 4x4 to start our travels and tow the van. Reason was a weight issue trying to carry LEGALLY all that may be required.
Has anyone done this and what or how did they get vehicle insurance.
Its classed as a light truck so a commercial vehicle. But it is to be used for private use only. No one seems to want to know or help.
So looking for people with a similar issue/setup

There's a few Canter 4X4 builds on MySwag.org.
You could ask them what they did.

Ken Tame Pty Ltd is no longer a broker, they are now owned by the insurer that they represent, but they have provided first class policies and service to CMCA Members for a long time.

Hi
I'm not sure about insurance, but my wife has a Toyota dyna with a "box" on the back , which has sleeping space, this qualifies as " caravan" in Sth Aus which reduces the rego by heaps, defineatly worth considering, you don't have to sleep in it. I doubt you'll get mixed up in the current tax evasion stuff, hey!
Cheers

Shane has it nailed. Put a sleeper box on the tray of the Canter, call it a "motorhome" and you will get lower rego in most states, and easily get insurance.

Cheers, Ron.
