    We are shortly off to Germany and understand that we need winter tyres and snow chains.

    I have ordered the tyres but does anybody have snow chains and if so do I need specific ones for the MH? A lot of the snow chain sites are confusing and I dont want to buy anything that is not fit for purpose so some help would be great.

    BTW we are hoping not to have to use them but I understand that they are a legal requirement.

    And yest we will try them out before the snow is 2ft deep:RollEyes::RollEyes:

    Snow chains are not a legal requirement for Germany, whether or not you will require them depends more on where in Germany you are thinking of visiting and when, the following link gives full imformation.

    thinkyou will need 16mm chains for vans and truck chains for cars are thinner.
    e-bay sells them around £50
