Trying to fathom out the logic behind some parts of UK legislation, of which this one, will only result in a deterioration of health and a premature 'demise'Great Info guys but where does the D part of the licence come into this, AFAIK the RV is coach based not HGV based therefore surely the D portion of the licence comes into play as I can go buy a full size coach and have under 16 seats and theres no weight limit and a limit of 12000kg towing?
There is no logic -
for example: I cease my weekday job driving 15 metre long passenger coaches in order to take the RV away for the weekend - hang on, I am not licensed to drive a 15 metre RV, I must 'saw' 3 metres off its length
(because the RV is deemed NOT a passenger carrying vehicle it's permitted maximum length can only legally be 12 metres in the EU) (other lengths are available )
Hang on Rick and I (and others) can put a large (car) trailer behind the RV and drive the combination measuring 18.75 metres overall, perfectly legally
No D.V.S.A (v.o.s.a.) personnel were harmed in trying to fathom this logic
