Spoken to licensing yesterday. As long as its for private use only there's no rules that say i can't. But must check with my insurance to make sure it doesn't invalidate my policy. If it was a trailer carring customers luggage or goods then it would have to be plated and tested because its being used for hire and reward. But for a private canvan no problem

I thought you were in South Kesteven.


yes I am and there are one or two vehicles with them because it's a rule they forget to enforce
According to appendix A on your 2015 policy paragraph 31.1
The vehicle may tow a trailer but shall:
• comply with the towing weights specified by the vehicle’s manufacturer;
• provide secure and weatherproof storage for luggage;
• display the licence plate on a platform kit at the re



they have changed it again then didn't read the last update all the way through
