Series 5 Senator + Caravanstore Awning

Recommended Posts

The overall width of the new Series 5 Senators is 2. 28m, just 2cm inside the limit of 2. 3m (for normal tow vehicles).

 

Fitting a Fiamma Caravanstore awning (or an Omnistore) to the awning rail and leaving it on during transit will make the caravan wider than the 2. 3m limit.

 

Is this legal or not?

Eerh, quite.

 

Given the number of 2. 5m wide 'vans being towed illegaly in the UK, and their ability to 'get away with it' without being stopped by Police, a few cms added on one side of the 'van isn't going to bother a single soul!!

 

More important things to worry about!

Legally speaking, yes it is illeagal if being towed by a normal motor car.

Trailers over 2. 3m wide must be towed by a heavy motor car or above.

However the chances of being stopped by the police are very small.

There are different rules for caravans here on holiday but imported caravans which are sold in the UK are subject to our full traffic laws. :rolleyes:
