LOL Gra ..... have to admit, it wouldn't be going far from home for sure ... BILs perhaps, or the neighbour, next farm over and not very often.

Wanna be a brave plod to pull a duck over .... and need to know his sh1t. Not that we see 'em up here, often, if ever

Be just my luck to pull out the end of the drive and get tee-boned by one

Reckon we ought to lobby for the Norwegian system .... no reg, tax, ticket ... just drive LOL
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

Mind you, TBH, having seen some of the crap that I've been asked to repair over the years, it might not be too bad a thing, to happen ..... there is some sh1t being dragged about the roads, masquerading as trailers and I really mean S.H.1 T.
Yes I've seen so many trailers that want condemning.

Mine are outed for new regally and I refuse to buy 2nd hand. For what a 2nd hand one sells for vs a new it's a no brainer....why would you put your 20k digger on back of a 700 trailer with worn out brakes n crap tyres.
If in doubt hit it.
