Trailer Importation

I'm looking to import a tractor trailer, that has been converted into a shed/mini house, on wheels. It's road worthy on American roads, not sure who I would ask to if it's road worthy on Swiss or EU roads. It's over 25 years old if that helps. Any thoughts or contacts I could email on how to or if it KS street legal for importation?

Re: Trailer Importation

In general, almost no chance.

My local garage guy recently got around it for a customer by mounting the customer's trailer on a Swiss-legal trailer bed (we had some good talks about that one).

Re: Trailer Importation

ask at the Strassenverkehrsamt. They should be able to tell you what to do and whether it is worth even trying.
