    Car Transporter Trailer required to hire or borrow

    yawn There is no C&U law that says the servo has to be powered.

    The A frame itself might be unbraked but there is an electrical system available that works off the brake light circuit for use with an A frame that applies the towed car brakes. How well those brakes are applied is another matter.

    A frames now illegal in Spain Are you sure you're not interested in buying one?

    Abrasive in style should be substituted by gratuitously offensive given those vids.

    Don't use one in Germany John. Someone I know who tows the same small car as me (<750kg) got his cars impounded at a service area there until the towed car had been put on a trailer. Turned out to be a very expensive day as he was forced to immediately buy a trailer. This led me to buy the shortest Brian James car trailer which tows much nicer than any A frame and there's no worry about transmission damage of the towed car or different laws in different countries.

    Link? What you say does not appear correct for UK use but does match the limitations imposed by certain other EU countries. Some countries ban their use entirely but they remain legal in the UK if all the brakes work at the same time as the towing vehicle if the towed car is >750kg.

    Haw haw is always very careful to say 'free movement' but knows the vast majority will then 'think freedom of movement'.

    Sorry can't help with the trailer. My suitable Ifor W lives and is registered/insured abroad. Just interested in your A frame though. Do your towed car brakes work when being A framed?

    Au contraire. He has got where he is (and got us where we now are) by 20 years worth of winding up ordinary decent hard working people to blame the wrong cause for their perceived ills. Y'know the ills he constantly reminds them they have.

    If, on further information and analysis, we are going to be worse off then no.
