Papers required for UK to Spain tow

Hi Guys, sold my rib and haven't been on for a while...

Quick question, I am buying a 3.1 m rib to use as a tender for my boat in Spain.

Buying used on ebay, no paperwork except a bill of sale from the seller.

What problems am I likely to incur, towing from UK to Spain.

.......just the usual tolls, fuel, plus a few spares for the trailer (after a good check/service) and the long slap I should think..

Obviously you want a secure place to park at night,and hitch lock of some kind when you stop and its Always a good idea to carry original receipt/proof of ownership...or what you have.

I regularly tow my RIB from the UK to Provence; I added it to the Small Ships Register for a nominal fee in order to obtain a registration document: I have only had to produce it when renting a berth, but it was always been deemed satisfactory. As yours is a tender, this may be overkill, but for 20 I reckons it’s worthwhile.
