Help needed - Importing a Brand new Camper Van

Hi all,

I am looking at buying a brand new Van which will be camperised by a professional company in Spain. (VW T6.1) (mainly adding a roof top, kitchen and passenger seats)

Based on the research that I have made, I would need the following things:

- Import Process: https://www.ezv.admin.ch/ezv/de/home...nenwagen-.html

- Certificate of Comformity CoC: (to be shared by the dealer) https://stva.zh.ch/internet/sicherhe...importCOC.html

On the CoC I guess that all the changes will be displayed there, but are there any other things I need to be aware from?

I am afraid to make the investment and then the car does not go through so any experience on this topic will be very helpful.

Thank you in advance

Re: Help needed - Importing a Brand new Camper Van

California is "only" 6-8k CHF (16-22%) more expensive than the Multivan. (perhaps different in Spain)
Is it really worth all the hassle (custom built and paperwork)?

Edit: Ah sorry, Transporter model is still a few (4) k less than Multivan, but that guy got no windows.

Re: Help needed - Importing a Brand new Camper Van

Presumably the OP has decided that buying a California in ES and just importing it 'ready made' is considerably more expensive than the route he is taking.
It would be worth reconsidering (obviously we don't know the numbers) because a factory California will always be worth more than a custom, unless the custom is a considerably higher spec.
Is there not MwST to pay as well on import?
