How long does a trailer last?
When we went through European Type approval our colleagues at the VCA (Vehicle Certification Agency) assured us that by 2020 most trailers on the road would comply with the law.
Well the trailer brought into our workshop this week was manufactured in 1978, it needed new bearings and a small mod at the front. It had not lived in a salt environment, but at 41 years it still had a long way to go.
As for the VCA well I am sitting in my office looking out the window and I can clearly see yet another flock of pink elephants flying past!!
