My registration document from CRiS has finally come after chasing it for 18 months but im confused as I my caravan is listed on the document as a Swift Chorus (Lincoln) when I have a Sterling Europa 500 C.

Any advice?

It seems a long time to wait as it should only take a few weeks but just do the obvious and contact them with your query. It's no different to having a vehicle registration document for your car when it states a Ford Focus and you actually own a Vauxhall Astra.

Just reminds me, I haven't had my ownership change document from them and I did it in October. Must call them.

I would call them about that difference, it could be important if you come to sell, might make people wonder why it is wrong.

You will need to physically check the VIN plate on the caravan against the one shown on the CRiS document to ensure that they match.
My guess is someone has either written a wrong number down, or entered a wrong number on the computers at CRiS.
Either way, try to take a photo of the VIN plate and include that as proof of the correct make & model to the van and express the need for a quick resolution

Check the numbers on the caravan chassis plate and windows have not been altered.

Post 1997 licence holder?

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

  CRIS registered my Avondale sandmartin as an Avondale Dart , by recording a 5 as an

 S , ( their fault not mine .)   When the owner of the Dart sold it ,  CRIS informed me that

 someone else was trying to register MY Dart !   I had to send a photo of the number on

 the vans Chassis to verify that I had a Sandmartin !  they sorted it quickly after they had

 the evidence !

I refuse to pay for registering. I keep the certificate, email CRIS with the reg no. And all details and when they reply to me telling me how to Register, I print their reply and keep that as proof that they know I have it to show to a purchaser years down the line. No one has ever questioned that (trade or private) and I have sold many over the years.

quick question, I bought a caravan at the very beginning of December and dealer showed me (and gave me copy) they had faxed form to CRIS to change ownership.
Should I have had something from CRIS paperwork wise

Yes you should receive a new certificate with your name on it
