Hi all

Anyone know the legalities of a roadtrain in uk. I know length is limited but how do weights work if using transit sized van to tow say caravan and loaded trailer would one have to be a draw bar or not and is weihts compliant on axles.
many thanks
Milly

 I dont think you can roadtrain in the UK with a vehicle under 7500kgs as then pulling vehicle, you might get away with it with a 7500kgs vehicle but I am sure you have to have a hgv class 1 licience to legaly drive like that
