European directive says we can’t build our own any more 😥

Road trailers have to be build by an established trailer builder to ensure quality standards. Today a trailer must have a type number, serial number and a registered builders number. Apparently too much dangerous garbage was hitting the roads in the past. Maybe you can still build your own behind a used hitch with the builders plate still attached? And hope the police never checks the numbers 🙄
