We have a second hand Ifor Williams horse trailer in the UK that we wish to bring to France. It is a 2005 model and believe that we need to get a C o C in order to get a Carte Gris here in France. Most of the forums I have read relate to new trailers or those under a specific weight limit which clearly do not relate to my situation.
My question is, when I go to the prefecture (probably Montauban as we live in Dept 82) to get the Carte Gris what other paperwork do I need and where do I take the trailer? I know it needs to be inspected to ensure it matches the paperwork, but do not think for one moment that they will want a horse trailer parked in the centre of Montauban blocking the road! According to Ifor Williams UK the C o C will cost £190 or 250€ and approx 50€ to get the Carte Gris. Has any one any experience of this and how long it is likely to take?
Many thanks to all in advance
