The internal features are defined by the type approval requirements for motor caravans and must be rigidly fixed to the living compartment.

For a vehicle to be recognised as being converted to a motor caravan, it must meet all 4 categories in this guidance. For DVLA to change the body type, the vehicle must have the external permanent features described in the DVLA guidance for converting a vehicle into a motor caravan.
