What are the speed limits for a van that's been converted into a camper?

I have a Volkswagen T5 T28 van that has been converted to a camper van, the logbook has been changed by the DVLA and now states body type: Motor Caravan and the vehicle category is N1. What are the speed limits for this camper van?

The speed limit will be dependant on the unladen weight of the camper van.

Vans with an unladen weight up to 3050kg have the same speed limits as cars. Campers that exceed 3050kg are restricted to 50mph on single carriageways and 60mph on dual carriageways.
