Yup- just out of Qld. RV type vehicles to have log books same as the trucks have at the moment. Even if the RV is garaged for 6 months of the year- 'book must be filled in daily- and can be inspected at any time.
Fines for non accurate log books will incur penalties and points.
Also, more inspections for RVs exceeding GVM and non-ADR additions- stiff penalties.

Nah- this can't be a revenue raiser !!!

Ave a good weekend

sounds like an urban myth to me.
Where do they draw the line for RV type vehicles - any sedan/wagon with AWD?

Signman, do you have a link to anything that gives credence to your post and what is meant by RV in this context?

They should wait until they can enforce the current ones for trucks before they start adding them to RV's as well!

I heard that State Traffic Task Force from Brisbane was out St. George way around the beginning of May checking on big rigs and when things were quiet checked Campervans for overlength. that is measuring overhang and if more than legal (ie)more than 60% of the wheelbase than the fines started.
So beware check for storage and toolboxes hung on the back of the vehicles.including motorbikes racks.

Just checked the transport site - no mention of it. Also nothing in the legislation or bills. Is there a bit os scuttlebut that we need to know?

Normally hear it first in the Courier Mail but I wouldn't be surprised to hear it first on EO!

Kind regards

Truck log books have to filled out only for the hours that the driver operates that vehicle, has nothing to do with the vehicle, parked or moving. The same rules that apply to trucks also apply to rvs, as they should, along with every other vehicle on the road ( including push bikes. ). Col MC operator.

sorry but this link may explain a little bit more. Most campervans are built to the maxium length allowed on that wheel base.
