Is a VW T4 Trophy a Van Conversion or a Class

Post by Guest on Sun Oct 09, 2016 5:19 pm

Hi,

I'm fairly new to the Forum although we have owned a Trophy for nearly 20 years - registered April 1997 possibly the newest Trophy around.

I have been posting on the "Van Conversion" site but I wonder if the Trophy now classifies as a "Classic" - any thoughts would be welcome

Van conversion to me. I see Bedford based and Talbot based conversions as classics as those makes are not around anymore. You could argue that because Transits are still made then mk1&2 based ones are not classics either but to me they are, can't explain my thinking on that.

I would say van conversion aka as a B Class camper van. For insurance purposes classic camper van insurance is typically for vehicles over 20 years of age.

On the VW front, it's common to see the T25/T3/Wedge as a classic now but not the T4 yet. That will change, but your guess is as good as mine as to when...

When i insured my L reg Trophy last year they told me it qualified for "Classic" insurance..... although in my head i consider a classic to be a vehicle that you don't have to pay road tax on. Insurance was cheaper than i expected so i'm not complaining !
