Ironically  when I was browsing ebay the other day I spotted this 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ingemex-dropside-body-new-unused-body-3-8m-x-2-1m-peugeot-boxer-1100-VAT/113420907080

 

"Year 2018 body, fitted to a new chassis cab for the purpose of getting it through an IVA test only, then removed. Never carried a load, never been used for anything other than the test."

I'm afraid you have been slightly miss informened. As a new, unregistered vehicle it has to have type approval when it is registered which yes, does involve the dvsa or dvla (im not entirely sure which it is from memory) but...If a vehicle has already been registered and has its type approval, a body change can be done without the need for another type approval being carried out (weather that be converting from pickup to tray back, pickup to tipper or tipper to heigh sided tipper, makes no difference) provided it is just the body being altered and not the chassis. With regards to weights, all that's needed is a ticket from a weighbridge to submit as proof of what it actually weighs. All of this information I was told by the dvsa and DVLA when I was digging around for information

It's no different to buying something like a single cab ford ranger then fitting a canopy to it. Effectively you've altered both it's size and weight but it doesn't need any approval from dvsa/DVLA to fit said canopy

To be fair, my insurance company are only intersested in being informed of the modification, they were not interested in any certificate!

So my vosa guy was gettting a bit excited then was he?

I can understand adding a tailored canopy to a pickup would be ok, but not making something yourself from what i gather.

If you'd have bought the truck and had it registered then changed body there wouldn't have been an issue. Reaisticaly its no differsnt to any vehicle modifications eg body kit, exaust, engin mods etc and you wouldnt exlect to have to tell vosa about those. A good example would be to look at the length people go to modifying landrovers fpr off road, considerably changing the size and overall weight. I think making something your self is frowned upon but when it boils down to it it all depends on what materials were used and how well it has been put together to be honest
