Joker,

Welcome to ribnet!

Do you mean the "chassis number" (VIN in car speak) or the towing vehicle's registration plate?

It's a Euro wide thing that you will need the towing vehicle's registration plate, country ID plate and suitable lighting on the back. Thankfully harmonised Europe means if it doesn't have a lighting board whne you pick it up a quick diversion to a car / trailer shop will get you one. (or better still - ask the seller and if not bring your own!)

Regarding the trailer's chassis number I'll need to hand you over to the Irish & Dutch guys who will know the rules for the respective countries better than me, although I guess whether it even needs one or not will depend on the age of the trailer.

What's the new boat?

Trailers towed by cars do not have to be registered in Ireland.
