    HI Liam,

    I have replied to your PM :) I did it before i read this post tho! HOw long are you intending to live in SPain? Im now back in the UK tho still got house in Spain (currently worth about 1 euro!) The Spanish vehicles are indeed more expensive than here, Id want one from the South as better condition, when were looking they all seemed to be in Barcelona or Basque Country area, ie other end of the country! You need an NIE no to buy a Spanish one and register it, also each change of ownership costs money, not free like in the UK, try and get the seller to pay the change of docs fees - it has to be done by a gestoria, or poss trafico but not sure about that. I would make sure that if you buy one there it has it as a homologised camper on the log book. Otherwise you may be needing to strip the interior out every time its ITV time. RHD commercial vehicles cannot be registerd onto Spanish plates. Even if now a camper, it has to be a camper on the log book. I think ive repeated stuff from my PM as I have got a bit carried away! Feel free to ask me any questions :) where are you in Spain? :) ave you tried milanuncios or segundamano web sites, or furgovw?

    If you want to buy a road legal van in UK you will need insurance, this is were you may fall down as you are not a UK resident. It is illegal to be resident in one euro country and drive/own a vehicle legal in another ( just read this on another forum).

    You could of course use a parents/friends address.
