Is this another A frame grey area that we can argue about for years to come?
Whatever the result it will have a large impact on who can and can't use one.
If it is a trailer then there are plenty of people who will not be able to use one because of their licence restrictions.
I it is not a trailer then the whole weight of rack and bike will be added on to your MH weight putting most over the weight limit.
I know the manufacturers state that 80% of the weight is not on your MH but put it on a weigh bridge and it's all included in your weight and will put a lot of people over the limit.
I personally think that it is a trailer (but stand to be corrected) so remember no 3rd lane overtakes on the motorway and reduced speed limits etc etc.
