Should an older camper mean vintage VRT?

I imported a 1972 Volkswagen T2  van from Europe. It is quite basic and not fully done up yet or restored. Revenue want to charge €800 VRT despite me paying only €800 for it when I bought it. I am being charged as a camper van, but I expected to be charged the flat vintage rate of €200 as it is over 40 years old. Should I not have been taxed the vintage rate? They say that is only for automobiles, but the website does not state that. It says all vintage vehicles and the VW T2 is a vehicle is it not?

Great if you could advise.

Thoughts on my Touran's value?

Hi there, just want to get another opinion on trade in value.

I bought a 162 Volkswagen Touran in a Highline spec with the 2.0-litre engine not 1.6 and the automobile cost me just slightly over the €40k mark. We have been pricing around to trade up for a 182 Tiguan each ofspace and I've tried five to six Volkswagen dealers with the highest  of €22k as a trade-in value for my own automobile, so that’s a loss of €18k in two years and there was me thinking buying a VW was a sound bet!

I also ed Volkswagen Ireland and the response I got was "your local dealer is best equipped to give you the best trade in." Is it any wonder people are deciding to go to the UK to buy when there is a serious rip off culture in this country? I look forward to your thoughts on this.
