|Motoring in Thailand and Asia Cars and motorbikes in Thailand and Asia, Where to buy and sell your truck? Where to get fixed and what garage to use. Should I buy a suzuki carry? Will it have a car DVD? Will my travel insurance cover me for driving in Thailand? Or should I just buy a Mercedes or a Honda CRV? Everything to do with motoring and vehicles goes in this section. Do I really need a driving licence in Thailand to drive to Bangkok car hire?|

utility trailers in LOS-Are they legal?
I was just curious. I don't think that I've ever seen a car or truck with a trailer hooked up to the bumper. I've also never seen any full size vans in LOS but I assume that is due to gas prices. Is pulling a trailer legal in LOS? I plan on doing some exporting of teak products, maily doors and pulling a trailer would make it easier.

I have two trailers, 1 for motorcycles and a general utility one. Both manufactured here at a company out at Ban pii. (about 50K each)
Even seen a couple of ozzie built Caravans running around.

hate to disagree
They can be registered. It takes a lot of too and fro with the local registry. THere is a guy in Phuket town building boat trailers and he gets them registered.
I believe the main catch is they must have brakes, he uses the elect. one that works off of tongue pressure.
Not sure what all the hassles are but I do know about the brakes. That is at least according to Phuket registry. Not sure about others.

I read that the best way to do it was to get the trailer plans Ok'd first and then build the trailer. That way it should pass inspection first time.

I have one, may be 5 meter long, ( 2 axys, 4 wheels) fully registered...
I know 3 good manufacturers
Welcome to UpTBB for motorbikes and cars and anything ( a dutch in Bang Na, bkk )
Viking trailer ( a swedish manufacturer in Korat )
and another one ( english manufacturer in Korat...)
Better keep the papers handy when you drive around with it coz the men in brown are not sure they can be registered, but they definiteley are registerable !
The half pick up type is getting popular also over here, seen a few...
If you get a 2 axys, less chances of jumping back of the car, you should look also for a good breaking system if you look for one, mostly it is built in the connecting shaft, if compressed it brakes...
I can pass over the fones by PM to anyone wanting more infos, this item is starting to get more and more popular...
Pataya has plenty of cheap bad quality ones just to trawl to boats out of sea and go a few hundred meters...

I heard they were illegal as well, although after a while you come to relise most Thai's knowlage of the actual law is pretty poor. Most people with farms have one for moving cows, never seem to have a problem.

First thing I would think is to define what is legal,
Ask any cop if it is legal to make "U" turn thru a safety zone?, or is it legal for passengers on motorcycles to ride without a helmet?, or is it legal for cars and trucks to be on the hyway after dark with no tail lights or with other colors of rear lights other than red?..
The answers you will get is, OH no it is not legal, but we do not enforce those laws.
So it just depends on who you piece off and what you want to do.
Just because it in the laws as legal or illegal means nothing to the cop that stops you, if he needs money he stops you and if not then you are free to go on.
Couple years ago I was driving thru BKK on an expressway and stopped at a toll booth, it was closed so I went to continue on, a cop stopped me before I could merge back into traffic and was fined 200 baht for stopping at a toll both, he put the money in his pocket and he wished us a safe and happy trip..

trailers if properly manufactured are LEGAL
I have exactely the same as this one from Viking Trailer, fully legal and registered....
To be registered you need to have ligths, number plate and insurance, a few stickers all of this is arranged at the purchase by the manufacturer...
I paid 100k for this one + 10 k for the upper frame + 10 k for registration + 5 k for the hook on the pick up, i fitted 2 pick ups, each 5 k...
This one can be found at : Viking Custom Trailer Manufacturer Thailand
And here another fully registered and legal version of bike trailer, made by
this trailer handles 2 bikes and the storing system of the trailer is quite clever, you lift vertical the trailer once no more used and small wheels will enable you to park it vertically against a wall in your garage...
This model sales well in export and sales in land here are growing...
ther is another guy producing fully legal and registered trailers here in korat, if necessary i can give the fone numbers via PM...
