    Its because of the lack of chassis ID and various paperwork from Manufacturer on them. Its difficult here too but do able as we had to do the last horsebox. Just needs a different inspection first and a number stamping (in our case they used a welded number on the chassis which was already there) then a bit of paperwork, But newer stuff should have all the required stamps and paperwork. our first horsebox did have chassis number so only needed to request some paperwork for it from Manufacturer, to go through the normal process, and the Brain James we brought in Germany as it then comes with all the required paperwork and its then straight forward.

    I think the UK are catching up with the need for trailer registration and chassis numbers to stop all the theft of trailers.

    One thing the Froggychops can do is make a decent efficient woodburning stove! Wonder how long they'll be allowed to!

    Did once hear a story about an industrial lathe being delivered. It ended up on a kerb on a blokes toes. He was wearing totectors. But he was rooted to the spot as the weight pushed the metal of the toetectors down into the tarmac!

    Strangely quite a bit of stuff seems to be cheaper in Germany than elsewhere. My stepson bought his camper van there rather than in France as it was a lot cheaper. If he sells it he'll prolly make a profit even though he's had it a few years now!

    I fitted some new ears to the trailer before it’s test on Monday, got a bit of a surprise when taking off one of the light guards a bloody wasps nest:eek: coffee time:)
    Came back 20mins later and carried on. Finished.

    I did watch the F1 and MotoGP qualifying but I can't class that as actually doing something as it involved sitting on me arse. :D
