My Motorhome: A Caravan of all things !!

It’s a system that’s built into the brakes from the initial design stage. See below link for an explanation of how caravan brakes disengage when being reversed and you will understand why a towed cars brakes cannot work like a caravans and therefore why an over-run A frame CANNOT comply with the regulations. I know people think I keep banging on about it but it was my job for thirty years and I KNOW what the regulations are and how they apply to trailers (which, as the info on the previous link states, is what a car on an A frame becomes. A trailer)
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
