Because it looks like a ambulance, it has to look to a plod or a witness like a motor caravan and it plainly doesn't, despite the extra bits MoHo bits.

Here's a pdf of the requirements, "the body type will not be changed unless the exterior of the vehicle actually appears to be a motor home." apparently it is illegal NOT to notify them if you have all the requirements

As I understand it having just registered a van as a motorcaravan that this policy has been reviewed. See here

However there may still be an issue with a vehicle painted in an ambulance colour scheme. On the other hand presumably it is no longer registered as an ambulance so an ambulance colour scheme would seem to be acceptable for non ambulances.

Is it motorcaravan in log book.
yeah i re-registered it no probs . i will add that it's probably best to shift any ambo signage. i once had an Austin Princess ambo , ex St John's, and one of their members got the hump seeing a long haired hillbilly driving it around and grassed me up , got done for no mot

I Like that think as long as it didn’t say ambulance on it you could keep the colour or have it any colour you wanted pink with brown dots don’t think it matters as long as you have fun in it. What’s cooking in the pot?

Hi welcome aboard.
Got any pics of the inside? Couldn't call it a stealth camper could you? :D
Hi again. Long time coming. I have made a couple of videos, of outside and inside. Now repainted and no longer her priority at junctions lol. I'll post a link to my build in a new post on the forum. Hope you can find it. 😁

Hi. I have almost completed the inside. As you can see it is still in ambulance livery. This seems to be advantageous at the moment as other road users give me priority all the time. This is making it very difficult for me to get the inclination to change it. What do you think ?
