There is a member on the forums that has an Axis or Vegas unit in Europe. Can't remember their name/id at the moment (there may be more than one).

Search for Europe (England, Scotland, or Ireland I think) you may find some of the old posts including what they had to get done in order for the coach to work over there.

An ACE may be a bit large for the roads over there--you'll definately stand out.

Are you going to be over there full-time, or is this for a vacation trip?
If it's the latter: perhaps renting an RV over there would be s possibility...

Chance is going to have a conniption when he reads this.

Two things:
Any info given here will be wrong at best, incomplete as a rule, and sabotage at worst.
Ask a registered importer/converter in the country you're bring it IN to.


I'm thinking, and again this is entirely worthless conjecture:
The v10 is likely disallowed and the 7.3 also.

Ah... I misunderstood what your intent was.
Importing vehicles that were not built to comply with your Country's regulations is a dicey proposition.
Are there any similar models over in your Country; that might be available?

From what my memory has managed to grasp: you have the issue of voltage, the left-hand drive vs. right-hand drive. there are differences in lighting packages as well..
(At least the toilet would still flush! )
