I'm having a few problems finding the correct rate for road tax for when I import my motorhome. Bringing it in from Germany and it was first registered in 2012.It's a LHD Chausson Flash 03 on a Ford TDCi 2.2. (under 3500kg)

No CO2 emmisions on the COC but its states its a 'Euro 4'.

So far from DVLA I've had the following answers, depending on who I speak to...
1. Euro 4 light goods Tax Class 36 = £140
2. Private or light goods (PLG) over 1549cc = £230
3. Light goods Tax Class 39 = £225

Number 1 is unlikely as it only applies for vehicles registered between 01/03/03 and 31/12/06. That leaves me with options 2 and 3. Given that option 2 is £5 more than 2 I'm tempted to go for that rather than risk getting the application rejected. Any one else had the same issue?

I agree,it's £230. Now if it were uprated to 3850kg then it would only be £165.

The starting point is to get the 'body type' registered as 'Motor Caravan'. The VED class will then be TC10 or TC11 depending upon whether the MGW is up to or over 3500kg.
