Selling as its just not used, so we want to get a camper/motorhome.

Asking £9k ono or would consider a swap for a camper/motorhome

Passed its MOT yesterday, straight through first time after sitting in storage for 5mths, no advisories.

The MOT tester said how mint it all is.

Did yours have a car class test with it being the 130 as that's all mine has ever been done as since it stopped being in service as a minibus. Another 130 mk2 owner said the same as well but I've always wondered...

If its over 3T GVW its a class 7. I had the same issue with my 110 Defender.

As mine is plated as 3200 kgs it is a class 7.

Could the GVW be plated higher due to what it was originally designed to carry fully laden with equipment/firemen?
My mk1 hasn't got a physical plate,but the original 'feuerwehr' paperwork I got with van has an amendment on it where seating capacity was reduced from 6 seats to 4, the GVW on mine is 2980kg.
220 kg is roughly the weight of two more bodies.

On Ebay. The camper thing has gone out the window now, my wife has severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and needs to give up work, the only way to do this is by selling our Audi Q3 so we aren't paying £400 a month in finance and selling my Firevan so we can buy a family car/van outright.

If this sells for what I like I'm hoping we can get a mk7 Sport Transit and add a rear seat.
