Grey nomads, families and adventurers are being encouraged to take advantage of a 40 per cent reduction in their caravan or camper trailers registration.

From November 1, the motor vehicle tax for towed caravans and purpose-built camper trailers that are privately registered will reduce by 40 per cent.

Motorists will still be required to pay the standard NSW registration fees including the annual fee of $65.

The reduction for private users is part of a suite of measures being introduced by the state government to deliver savings to consumers, Member for Port Macquarie Leslie Williams said.

“The government recognised the need to reduce costs associated with these popular vehicles, and this reduction in motor vehicle tax will allow people to spend their money on the things they love – including camping and caravanning around NSW,” she said.

It will equate to savings of up to $471.

Light vehicles including caravans attract a motor vehicle tax based on the vehicle’s weight.

“This tax is part of the cost associated with registering a vehicle in NSW, but eligible caravan owners will benefit from a reduction. Not only will this put money back into hip pockets, it will encourage more people to do business in NSW.”
