    I totally forgot to post a few pics of my trailer since i finished modifying it, so seen as it was a nice day and i finished early with the water left, i cleaned the car and canvas and took some pics

    Very good Keir, but how far does the ladder stick out? Some daft bugger could walk into it by the looks of it.

    That's another option for me too to get a tow bar fitted to the wifes car as I'm buggered if I can't find a decent van to replace my knackered one :D

    Yep, but we only have one car between us, but a few mates have towbars so i would nick their cars instead

    Tuffers, the ladders are only like that because i had just been in the boot,so i slackened the clamp and slid them back a bit. But its very rare i take ladders nowadays

    Actually that's a good point.
    I'm sure I seen somewhere that there is an actual limit for carrying objects that are longer than the length of the vehicle.....and as this is a trailer I think that limit is 'ZERO'.

    If I was you Keir, I'd check with VOSA....just to be on the safe side.

    That's why I did not mention the ladder as I knew you would have more commence sense than that.:thumbsup:

    If i remember correctly from my driving instructing days, its if an object projects more than 2m it then requires a flag type to warn other road users. But i will check, but when carrying the ladders they usually stick out about 12" and drift over the top of the car, thats why the front rack is higher than the back one, which also allows clearance for when i drive up hill/down hills so the ladders dont hit the roof of the car.

    Also when i get to work the days i take the ladders, i take them off and put them in a custies garden laid down until they are needed, because otherwise they are in the way for me to get in the trailer to remove poles or get to the controller.

    But thats what i love about this forum, you fella's keeping us all on our toes and keeping us all professional hahaha
