Philip got the panels up on the roof and cables through the roof beams just as it started to rain, inside at 17.30.

I checked with when rebuilding the smaller trailer. A trailer is regulated by the rules which were in force during the time-frame in which it was built.

It could be that any of the type approved trailers (i.e post 2012) fall into that requirement, but anything beforehand would be nigh on impossible to control as our trailers don't have registration numbers.

Type Approval for trailers is mainly for manufacturers who sell to the public, it was never satisfactorily explained how home-builts were affected, but Indespension and others have taken down a lot of their trailer kits and parts from their websites.

Modifying an existing trailer that was built before Oct 2012 does not come under the UNECE regulations.

More on the Sankey:

Philip has been fitting the side and marker lights today, in between fairly wintry showers.





These are LED lights, quite cheap but nice and bright.

Any trailer built post the mandatory incorporation of trailers as into EU regulation 2007/46 (Before that they could be approved but it was voluntary), will require the necessary type approval. There are currently three routes which you can go down to get a trailer approved. European Community whole vehicle type approval, by which your trailer could be used anywhere in the EU. National Small series type approval, whereby your vehicle could be used in the UK. The 3rd route is the IVA (Individual vehicle approval), which requires a one off inspection by the DVSA, who will then issue an IAC certificate, if the trailer passes. Again the trailer could only be for the UK market.

It is not just for mass produced trailer, this is the rule for all trailers, whether a home build job for running to the tip and back, or a multi million pound trailers like those that the F1 teams use.

Modifying existing trailers is a very sticky subject. It depends on how much of the original trailer is kept and just how much of a change there is as to whether it would be classed as a new build or not.

Philip has been using his trailer quite a bit, he is living in it when he can, even now in the winter.

He has a heater in there and carries a separate propane cylinder to extend the time between visits to fill up the gas.

Latest job was to change the NATO hitch to a 50mm standard ball coupling.

Bradley do a kit to change the coupling head, and although we had to cut the ring off as its pin was rusted into the coupling tube, the rest was fairly easy and a quick tow up the road showed that it was a lot quieter with no rattly from the towing eye.

We had to cut away part of the chassis bracing to clear the handle on the new head.
