Need a dingy towing to UK

Postby Freepower » Wed Aug 10, 2016 2:29 pm

I have a dingy on a trailer which is not registered for road use, in BG it will need towing on a vehicle with UK registration plates. My alternative is to tow it using a car trailer although I would rather not do that, the trailer is in good condition with new tyres and is about 15 ft. It tows easily with anything as there is little weight. needs to go between now and end September..

towing

I cant see anyone offering to tow a trailer that is not legal or roadworthy. All trailers have to have insurance one way or the other ( usually covered by the cars insurance )

And your point is what, it has to be towed with a UK registered vehicle and is therefore covered on the vehicle insurance.
The trailer is very roadworthy as I said.

For the amount someone will charge you to drag it across the continent compared to its value it might be better to sell the thing here and buy a new one in the UK

The very idea of towing an old dinghy from one side of Europe to the other makes me wonder what grasp the OP has on economic reality.
