Taking RIB on ferry

Just been looking around for some rough prices on ferry crossings - when I get my boat wouldn't mind taking it to the med etc - thought it would be really expensive for an 8.5m RIB but P+O came up with 420 return Dover Calais and SeaFrance quoted 240 - not bad with a Land Rover 110 I thought.

Anyone got any experience of trailering to the South of France?

What do those prices represent - boat & trailer or the whole thing (Landie + boat & trailer)?

Must say I don't envy you towing all that way - my idea of hell!! We're just one hour and a bit from Portsmouth and like to stay somewhere less then three hours drive once we land. And that's car only - haven't taken the boat... yet!

The whole thing!!!!

As to the drive after driving Gibraltar to Bilbao in one go nothing worries me anymore - wouldn't have done it in 8 hrs towing a rib though!

I know P & O had a special offer that caravans and trailers travelled free at certain times and Rene who came over for Ribex took advantage of that offer.(caravan / boat same thing) I think you had to book before 30 June but worth checking
