Earlier trailers will be fine with the usual old school disco light style trailor board hung on the back?
Please dont tell me they applied the rules retrospectively


No itís not retrospective Ken, I got pulled because of a dodgy old skool lighting board that wasnít working properly. Although it was working better than many you see on the roads.

Yes. And I thought sidelight exemption for boat trailers was still there - but I canít actually find the rules about sidelights in a definitive form to see. That rule does only apply to trailers >6m in length which is measured excluding the A frame so wonít affect most of us.

To add to the fun it seems to suggest that the pointy bit *might* be deemed part of the trailer depending on construction. Meaning anyone with a boat 6m or greater might be in the frame.

Oh, I see what you mean, well thatís nice and clear. Why would they not just use an unambiguous measurement like the total trailer length, or the total train length...

Is that good, bad or not allowed?


The regs doc you linked to appeared to suggest number plate on the centre or to the left - no mention of the right, seemed a bit odd.

I noticed that, but itís a Dutch built Trailer so assume itís fully compliant. I have the certificate of conformity. I wonder if the rules are different for us due to driving on the correct side of the road
