i am thinking of buying an american 5er and a ram 2500 is this legal in the UK before you all go yes it is...... dodge ram is 3500gross and is allowed by law to pull max 7mtrs long and 2.3 wide the 5er i am looking at is 10mtrs long and 2.4 wide gross vehicle weight of ram 3500 gross of 5er 5300 total 8800 on a standard licence you can go up to 8250kg combined. acording to the department for transport the 5er is a catogorie 03, definition is trailer over 3500kg but under 10000kg. so it should have ABS brakes, but all american 5ers have electronic brakes. most of the electronic brake systems seem to be inertia type and are not allowed in the UK. also most dont have parking brakes so my question still stands are american 5ers legal in the UK and how do you guys get round it.
