i think that all our uk used knott and alko hitches ,axels ,braking system etc are all tuv tested in germany anyway ,combine that with european marked light clusters and tyres with the desired carrying capacity,take your paperwork (manufacturer suplied ) to your iva test centre with your trailer which has been put together in line with the notes and thats it ,you cant really fail ,theoretically even if the runners are made of fencing stakes lashed together with string there isnt any guidelines about that !
i think the real purpose of iva is to generate a registration mark for the trailer and subsequently an annual test but until such times i see no reason why driving abroad in EU needs nothing more than driving a post 2011 trailer in the uk

Ive read that a couple of times, & Im genuinely still not sure what it says.
Re towing abroad, if your trailer is UK legal & being towed by a UK registered vehicle, then you are ok regardless of age.
Re. The construction, since 2014 all UK built trailers have to comply with the eu directive, hence the appearance of fixed lights & side markers.

Lights are ready now, just need the new poles galvanised and I'm good.

Looks good and may save 5 mins launching and recovering .....not worth the hassle or money though, get an led trailer board.
