And damn you all.. you made me wonder what categories I have on my license so I went to check, and now I realise my license isn't in my wallet... I hope it's still at home somewhere and not lost (I'm in a hotel for work) :-X :-X :-[

This has reminded me that I need to renew my licence which expires on the 25th and I'd forgotten.  ::)

Problem is that I'm also away for a few days and won't be able to put my application in until I get home and can get my passport number.  :(

I might be walking for a few days after the 25th...  :-[

And no need for a trailer A frame is fine.

I believe what DG was saying is that a car on an A frame, behind a motor home, counts as on a trainer for the purposes of the law - whether it's on an A frame or a trailer.

And damn you all.. you made me wonder what categories I have on my license so I went to check, and now I realise my license isn't in my wallet... I hope it's still at home somewhere and not lost (I'm in a hotel for work) :-X :-X :-[
Whether it's an a frame, a trailer or a car, as long as your max weight is less than 12 tonne, it's fine.....as far as I can see.
I certainly wouldn't like to try it, entitled or not. Fine on motorways and some a roads, but I think I'd be a bit dodgy on smaller roads.

I've been towing all kinds of trailers for donkeys years building equipment, classic cars + my twin axle 26 foot caravan so a little car on an A frame is going to be a piece of  piss.

The change to C1E includes a retrospective limit of 750kgs   (8,250kgs MTW) unless you pass a +E test for the applicable vehicle.

Yes, but the trailer would still be limited to 750kgs as it's a van/truck and not a car :y

Got to spend a few bob on the flat yet, new kitchen bathroom, windows doors etc. Make it more attractive belonged to wifes stepbrother , slightly eccentric character never did anything to the place as it is would sell for about 330,000 intend spending about 25,000 on it before going on the market for 425,000. In its favour is where it is + he renewed the lease last year so it has 124 year lease.
