    Yes in Spain, can be either but aluminium only for Italy. I suggest get an ally one anyway as the metal bits on the plastic ones rust and the markings can come off if you use a jet wash - that's been my experience.

    Personally,regardless of country,I would put a board on if anything exceeded the body of the vehicle in length.(y)

    In Spain, if your rear carrier is 10% of vehicle length you must have a board. As to plastic/ally, have no ideas but my choice would be aluminium
