Those with an interest in towing a car on an a-frame may know that the guidance given on the UK Government website was withdrawn for revision. This prompted various anti a-framers to presume that they would be made illegal and all sorts of other doom and gloom predictions.
About 6 weeks ago I wrote to the relevant government department to ask when the review would be complete and what did they regard as being a-frames (as there are 2 confusing types) - copy of my email below:
"Could you please advise as to when this review posted at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/a-frames-and-dollies/a-frames-and-dollies is likely to be completed by please?
And does 'A-frames' in this context refer to purpose built and bolted on components (as in for towing by a motorhome) rather than the temporary strap on recovery type of frames?
Well today I got a response!
"Thank you for your email dated 6 April regarding the information sheet on gov.uk. This can now be viewed at the following location:
Department for Transport"
So there you have it....
Very little difference to the previous guidance other than possibly being even more vague and avoiding issues of legality.
