You're not from Yorkshire, are you?
Cheaper still if you leave the van at home and live in a 'ole in 't road :)

This link takes you to the car park charges:

Car Park Charges (http://www.powys.gov.uk/en/roads-transport-and-parking/find-a-car-park/car-park-charges/)

It is unclear from this what charge applies to a motorhome. If you take it as a PLGV or PHGV maybe the 6.30 overnight charge does apply ...

When I queried the 'over 3 tonnes' rate they told me that motorhomes need only pay it if they take up more than one bay, regardless of weight.

Please find attached schedule of car parks suitable for motor home users in Powys unfortunately this isn't detailed on the website.

Motorhome only needs a car MOT so must be classed as a car No way can it be Goods

Motorhomes (no matter how big they are), are Passenger vehicles. Category M1 = 4 or more wheel vehicle with seats for up to 8 passengers plus the driver. This is the same category all other cars. M2 and M3 are Buses and Coaches.

Goods vehicles are category N.

There is some confusion because of the 1984/88 Road Traffic Act which authorises TROs specifies "Motor Car" and "Heavy Motor Car" and does not differentiate between passenger and goods vehicles. These Acts need up dating, to take into account the EC definitions which the UK government has now adopted. Local Authority legislation drafters simply copy from the old Acts at the best, or make up their own definitions in the case of a lot of authorities that have created a "Camping Vehicle" or "Sleeping Vehicle" category in their TROs.

Once a TRO is signed off, it is law.
