A camper van is classified as a passenger car for the bpm.
A camper van has to meet the following requirements:
- The interior must be able to hold an oblong block of at least 170 cm in height over a length of at least 200 cm and a width of at least 90 cm.
- The interior is the space behind the driver's and passenger seats, in which the facilities should be fitted.
- The interior must contain:
- at least 2 fixed seats
- a table
The table, or its mounting, may be designed in such a fashion as to allow the table to be removed simply.
- beds for at least 2 persons
These beds may be created using the seats, but not using the driver's and passenger seats.
- fixed and lockable storage facilities
- a fixed kitchen unit with a work surface that is at least 60 cm high, equipped with built-in (removable) water facilities with a sink, a tap and a drain. The facility as a whole must be intended for use inside the vehicle's interior.
- a fixed built-in cooking unit intended for use inside the vehicle's interior
Is the standard production height of the interior not 170 cm, but at least 130 cm? Then you may raise the interior to at least 170 cm over a length of at least 100 cm and a width of at least 90 cm. This may be done using a fixed raised roof or a pop-up roof. This only applies if the camper van also meets the other design requirements.
