Trailer Lighting


Recommended Posts

I am just finishing rewiring my transporter trailer with LED lights. The trailer originally had red outrigger lights on a flexible rubber stalk above the main lights. Is this a legal requirement? The trailer is an IFOR CT 177.

IIRC front & rear marker lights are dependent of the trailer width,

Trailers manufactured after 1 October 1985 which are more than 1600mm wide, (except boat trailers) require front position lamps (clear lens).

Certain trailers must have side position lights which show white to the front and red to the back. In addition, trailers over certain lengths must have amber side reflectors.

The trailer is 17ft long and 7ft wide. I have a front white marker and three amber side markers.

This is a rubber arm that extends out the side with red at the back and white at the front.
