Well, the answer is yes, it does.

But if you can get one without, a trailer board will be cheap enough.

Fuck me. That must be the best off topic swerve ever. From Blackpool to Norfolk, via camping trailers and indicators.  o.O

Surely the obvious answer is two cars..  then make sure you’re in the one with the camping gear and not the kids.

Unless the trailer is for the kids. In which case go for that.

True but that’s an extra 50 quids worth of petrol .i could deduct that off the cost of the trailer in theory .

On a more serious note,  the only thing I'd be worried about with the trailer is what to do with it when you're not using it.

Do you have a handy place to keep it?  It might look a bit crap if it ends up parked on the front lawn for 51 weeks of the year..

Technically a trailer manufactured before 1990, if you can see the rear lights of the car (under certain conditions) then do not need lights, but obviously best to have them and trailer board is fine.

Travelling a long way, just in case then get a proper plate made up, not point getting stopped for not having one.

Any chance of rain on the day of travel or otherwise, bag up / wrap up in plastic clothes to ensure bone dry, those tarp covers are good but splash behind car can find any gap.

Don't put all the heavy stuff at the rear of the trailer. You want balance of weight towards front on the hitch to prevent snaking. Empty you might find the trailer bounces a lot, get used to it before going may with the right foot, loaded will be a lot better.

Can I just say, ten posts in and no-one has derailed this thread onto talking about those clips for crap movies that you have no intention of seeing, but can't skip through on a DVD?

You lot should hang your heads in shame!

I couldn't find a trailer about trailers.

Trailer sounds like a lot of hassle and two cars is always better than one.

Got a company pickup truck when I was 19. Loads and loads of mates all of a sudden.

Lesson: Double garage doors have curious aerodynamic properties.
