Re: Wanted E350 chassis with tag axle

Basically we used to have more flexible agency before this wonderful EU. Back then these exemptions were considered and sometimes even approved if plans and ideas were good. Now when in EU exemptions are rarely made. Now it is so easy for this agency to say "We might approve it but EU wont so unfortunately we can not help you" Basically they hide behind EU... And in a way I do understand them it is much easier to deny all these "wild" suggestions than to really consider all of them.

Well then, I'd move. I'd also spend the rest of my waking days trying to get Finland out of the EU. Hey, good luck from Texas.

And I really do not believe that Sauli would "get his hands dirty" like that anymore

Re: Wanted E350 chassis with tag axle

Sounds like an interesting project.
It seems that all the various forums I go to ( from assorted bikes to VW diesels) the coolest + most powerful vehicle in that forum is from Finland.

Trust me I have tried this and answer was simple "modifications to vehicle axle configuration can only be done by vehicle manufacturer". So only way to get this done is to import a vehicle from US that has tag axle already installed by manufacturer. Also I can not install fifth wheel by myself "This coupling must be installed by a certified Truck/Trailer shop". Sound amazing does't it?

This is what we can look forward to in November if you know who gets elected. He will try to put the US in the EU.
