Europe Plan

Hey Guys,

I'm in the process of early planning for an extended tour (6 months) of Europe 2 up and am looking for advise on issues related to towing a trailer on the trip.

Has anyone had any personal experience at towing a trailer through Europe? Shipping issues, insurance, rego etc.

Because of the length of the stay I'm looking at keeping costs down by camping if and when the need arises so the extra space will come in handy.

Hi Bob, Trust me you will both have a ball. 6 Months won't seem long enough.

Re: Europe Plan

Bob, you couldn't have timed that question better..... or found a better offer of advice!
Better get on the phone, and have some paper and pencil(s) handy!

Oh, and post the final info on doing it for the rest of us dreamers ....

Hartmut has a hotel in Germany, which looks like a very enticing spot to stop.
