TREA­SURER AND MEM­BER for Hawkes­bury Do­minic Per­rot­tet has re­minded car­a­van own­ers that they are now el­i­gi­ble for a 40 per cent dis­count in reg­is­ter­ing car­a­vans and camper trail­ers.

“The changes came into ef­fect on Novem­ber 1 which means that car­a­van own­ers in the Hawkes­bury will now save up to $471 off their rego”, said Mr Per­rot­tet.

Trea­surer Do­minic Per­rot­tet said that the mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax is part of the cost as­so­ci­ated with reg­is­ter­ing a ve­hi­cle in NSW, but el­i­gi­ble car­a­van own­ers will now ben­e­fit from a re­duc­tion.

“Not only will this put money back into hip pock­ets, it will en­cour­age more peo­ple to travel and do busi­ness in NSW,” Mr Per­rot­tet said.

Min­is­ter for Roads, Mar­itime and Freight Melinda Pavey said the Lib­er­als and Naiton­als recog­nised the need to re­duce costs as­so­ci­ated with th­ese pop­u­lar ve­hi­cles.

“Th­ese are big num­bers and huge sav­ings. The change will ap­ply to towed car­a­vans and pur­pose-built camper trail­ers weigh­ing up to 4.5 tonnes, putting a sav­ing of up to $471 back into the pock­ets of hard work­ing fam­i­lies,” Mrs Pavey said.

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
