Re: Hi from Montreal, Quebec. :-) New member
Bonjour! from a new member in Terrebonne.
I'll speak english so everybody can follow our story.
I'm working on a design for a DIY campervan build, take a look at my posts if you're interested in helping.
Today I called "Transport Canada" they transferred me to "Ministère du transport du Québec" then they transferred me to the "SAAQ" then all hell broke loose...
They told me If I wanted to get my registration for the DIY campervan, I would need to have my raised fiberglass roof installed by professionals with a "marque de sécurité du Canada" seal and an engineer report for safety and everything, that would come up to roughly 15 000$ and they warned me even if I have all that, they might not give me the damn registration!!
I called my insurance company and they had no problem with anything, All I have to do is keep all of my receipts and document everything to get a total value price, that's all they need.
So I called the company where I would buy the roof (mory inc) they told me they sell hundreds of these things each year but the clients register the vans as the original vehicle not as the DIY campervan, The problem I have with that is if I have an accident and get injured, the SAAQ might not cover me or the person in the passenger's seat, even less the passengers in the back (illegal seat belts)
Did any of you from Quebec have any trouble getting registrations??
DIY conversion build, extended 2010 Ford 5.4L E250 + high top, from Montreal Canada, new to all this so please be patient and clear with me (never built or camped in a van yet)
