I am pleased to remind caravan owners in Heathcote that they will soon receive a 40 per cent discount in registering caravans and camper trailers.

The changes will come into effect from 1 November 2018.

This is great news for caravan owners of Heathcote as it means they will now save up to $471 off their rego.

KEY POINTS

  • 120,000 caravaners to benefit from the reduction
  •  Savings range from $46 to $471
  • The 40 per cent reduction applies to privately-owned towed caravans and purposed-built camper trailers, weighing 255kg to 4.5 tonne
  • A pensioner that elects to have free registration for a vehicle other than their caravan or camper trailer, is still be eligible for the 40 per cent discount

Towed caravans and purpose-built camper trailers that are privately registered will be eligible for the 40 per cent reduction in motor vehicle tax. Customers will still be required to pay the standard NSW registration fees including the annual fee of $65.

The motor vehicle tax reduction for private users is part of a suite of measurers being introduced by the NSW Government this year to put more money back in consumers’ pockets.
