Requirements for motorhome to travel Australia

Post by Darren12 »

Hi everyone, I have a 86 Scania K112 3 axle coach which I am building into motorhome. It has a under coach exhaust and I am wondering to travel around Australia does it have to have a exhaust running up through roof?

Also wondering if replacing headlights with led headlights is legal?

Still on hunt for a workshop manual also.
Thanks in advance.
Darren.

Hi Darren,
NHVR oversees the state regs for requirements. A low exhaust is legal, it doesnt have to go through the bodywork and exit high like it used to.
If you are replacing headlights they must have ADR approval

From memory, the high exhaust was only mandatory for vehicles newly registered in NSW in the 1990s which didn't meet certain (Euro 2 or 3?) emission standards.

Next question I have 2 double sets of seats that are from original setup of coach that do not have seatbelts. Can I use those seats without belts or am I required to replace with seats with belts?
Thanks Darren
