What will my 20 year old Volvo 940 and 2005 Toyota camper van cost to tax after the April VED changes?

I have a 20 year old petrol Volvo 940 and a 2005 Toyota diesel camper. I can't find anywhere what I will have to pay in road tax when I come to renewing the road tax after April 2017. Scarily, looking at figures - it could be in the region of £1000 and £2000 respectively. However, if it really only affects newly registered vehicles then maybe I should get them both taxed before 1 April 2017. At the moment one is SORN.

The new 2017 VED rules will only apply to new cars bought after the 1 April 2017. All cars registered before then will be taxed against the old CO2 system. For more details, see: www.honestjohn.co.uk/news/tax-insurance-and-warran.../
