    Towing car trailers

    What a mine field. I have a SWB shogun and a Ifor Williams
    four wheel braked trailer.

    Q1 If I carry MY car on it do I need a tacho?

    Q2 If I carry someone elses car do I need a tacho?


    I know its a minefield just thought some one would have experienced this.................in some way

    Hi DC,

    As Keith says, to the best of my knowledge you only need the tacho if it is for commecial use.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Tacho for commercial only.

    Depending on when you passed your driving test you might be overweight with the combo.

    As others have stated, No as long as you are not towing for a financial reward,

    as keith said no.no as long as it is not used for hire or reward. and if you put a sticker on the side of the towing vehicle saying that you should be perfectly ok as long as you pased your test before a certain date and you are not over weight on the trailor, the vans at our works have tachos fitted but only use them if they are used to recover another paying job.
