Default Importing catering trailer to NZ

Hi guys,

Long shot but has anyone or knows of anyone that has imported a mobile catering trailer to NZ.

We have one in UK and although would prefer to sell it before we leave, we are not going to give it away! I am sure that I saw on MAF website that it would be a trailer and not a motor vehicle but now can't find the page relating to it. We know it would have to be cleaned etc. but don't think it would need as much documentation as a car, basically it is a caravan with hatches for windows and non-slip floor instead of carpet, oh and nowhere to sleep!!!

Any help, advice etc. most welcome - especially if anyone can find the page regarding caravans and trailers.

Not sure about what is required in the UK on these things but can tell you what you need to know to use it in New Zealand.

A COF/WOF every six months all vehicles including trailers have MOTs on them in NZ.

Registration number and licencing (Vehicle Tax)

Electrical Certificate

Gas Certificate

Basically it has to pass the standards of New Zealand not just to get in the country but to be able to use it in New Zealand.

Ask youself is it really worth it?
