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?

:help::help:

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 :winky:
