Sounds great. One point - the DVLA will not re register as a campervan if the table is stowaway. Has to be a method of permanently fixing. Bonkers but there we are.

Yes they will, it has to be fixed when out, but can be removable.

Yes, that’s true Alex. As long as there is a permanent fixing on the floor you are good. You have probably guessed I fell foul of this rule (which is mandated by the Deptof Transport by the way not DVLA, they just administer).

It just has to have a fixed point - that doesn't need to be on the floor:

The one I have attaches to a rail which is permanently fixed to the cupboard/kitchen unit but doesn't fix to the floor.  The DVLA were fine with this and it looks from the photos of the OP's van that he/she may have a similar system in their van.  

As long as it's got a point of attachment and isn't completely loose it'll be fine.

Beware the DVLA have recently and unilaterally moved the goal posts on registering campervans, basically even if you meet all the regs for inside the van, if in their opinion it doesn’t look like a camper from outside it won’t now get through. Main implications seem to be lower speed limit and insurance hassles. This doesn’t effect campervans that have already got through. Do a search for this on campervan forums etc

Mine was the opposite. It looks exactly like a campervan inside and out, but no fixed table no register as a camper!
