Officially the tags are for vehicles under 3m in height and under 3.5t.


Im not sure how they are affected by towing a 5th wheeler if you still have one Pat. Might be work checking.


Ours works in our 5t (fully loaded) MH which is just a smidge above 3m.


My wife struggles to reach the tolls to put a card in, so having a tag is a must for us.

Sorry, but I'm on my holiday in France and that is faffing about - the less the better.


I'll stick with the Tag.

Thanks folks.
Graham we have taken the risk with the Fifth Wheeler and sent off for one. We start our "journey" on Monday so we paid for next day delivery of it.

I, too, cannot reach the tolls without getting out of the car so it will be a lot smoother journey.

Just plough through and plead ignorance Pat. Tell em I told you to.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Nice one.


I don't fix mine to the windscreen...I prefer to hold it low down in the windscreen as we approach the toll booths. I find I have a higher success rate of barrier lifts doing that.



Just in case it doesn't lift, just press the button and claim that you are a caravan...I'd prepare it in French if I were you. Without fail, whenever we have been unable to get the barrier up and spoken with them, we have been able to proceed with 'Classe deux' after a little 'Franglais'!



It takes some nerve but the ones where you can go through at 30kph have worked 100% of the time for us...but Id hate to think what would happen if the barrier didn't go up!


We are off to Spain on Jan 5th so will be making use of ours as we drive down through France.

Before fixing ours to the screen I secured our tag to the front of the sun visor with an elastic band. Pull the visor down and it's displayed. After it worked and proved itself it then got stuck to the screen to the right of my mirror out of my line of sight (LHD).
