    Has anyone had any problems taking a Toad on a ferry/Chunnel?

    Do you need to tell them that you are taking another motor vehicle or just book MH with a trailer?

    Irish ferries in 2004 - Pembroke to Rosslare - the booking office wanted to treat us as an HGV Artic because we were towing a trailer and were nearly 60 feet long overall.

    The freight office stated quite specifically we were not an Artic - just a motorhome and trailer - and eventually the Freight Office manager won the day and we went as normal passenger motorhome and trailer.

    Still very expensive at £440 return - I thought.

    Thanks for this Moanddick, luckily with the toad we are still only 38ft, probably shorter than your RV on its own.:RollEyes:

    I'd book it as a trailer...

    Unless it was cheaper as two vehicles and I had two drivers.

    And believe me, it CAN be cheaper as two vehicles :Wink:

    Just booked the car as trailer.

    had problem once as eurotunnul wanted me to do a U turn onto the train and could even with no toad in one go.

    Had to take it off manoeuvre and hitch up again.
