Smile 345 Airstream MH

Im looking at buying one of these for New Zealand roads but I have to jump through a few loop holes first. Im aware of the change in voltage would have to go from 120 to 240 V not sure if rewiring would be needed.

Legally need to Convert from LHD to RHD dont know if there are parts available for this

Legally it has to comply with the brake rules I was hoping if a member could help me with this.

This is what the technical specialist said

You would also need to determine whether the vehicle is fitted with an FMVSS label so compliance to a heavy vehicle brake standard is confirmed.
An FMVSS plate or label affixed to a vehicle with air brakes manufactured on or after 1 January 1975, or a vehicle with hydraulic brakes manufactured on or after 1 September 1983, or a vehicle with electric brakes manufactured on or after 1 November 1997, and original documents confirming the vehicle was first registered in the US

Thanks anyone who can help. I would really love one of these classics

You should PM Russell Col (http://www.airforums.com/forums/memb...col-84351.html), he has already got his 345 into New Zealand and is going through the same exercise.
