This would appear to be the whole bone of contention of the refusal by DVLA to re-classify as Motor home/Caravan.................. "Because it doesn't look like one"

Without the minimum criteria stated/required as described with the interior

Re: DVLA Converting a vehicle to a motorhome.

The DVLA have got them selves into a bind here. It states:
In order for a converted vehicle to qualify as a motor caravan it must have certain minimum features, as follows: A door, A bed, A water storage tank, A seating  arrangement, and  table, A permanently fixed means of storage, A permanently fixed cooking facility, At least one window, present, permanently fixed and installed properly.

If the vehicle has all of these features present, permanently fixed and installed properly, then it is a legal requirement to have it reclassified as a motor caravan  Yet when you apply , the application is turned down on the appearance qualification mentioned in paragraph one. So it's a legal obligation, and yet when you apply it is declined. Sounds like a catch 22 situation to me guys.

Do or don't you are in the wrong. Pressure needs to be put on the DVLA to decide which case they want, the law needs to be tested. 

Somehow.
