hi can anyone help please i have the cattle trailer from the latest trailer and cargo pack i went to pick up the trailer from swansea in uk enroute for dresden in germany when i picked the trailer up all the cows on top row and bottom row were securly inside the trailer. how ever i then proceded to harwich or felixstown and embarked on the ferry when i then traveld about 20km down the road in holland my truck came to a sudden halt under a bridge when i checked the left side mirror being my volvo fh16 is uk right hand drive i see some unfortunate cow had stuck its head through the side of the cattle trailer thus when i went under the bridge at 30mph the cows head hit the concrete support and no amount of reverse helped as the cow persisted to have its head outside my trailer like i say it was fine in uk but once in europe this happend and i had to abandone my load which i lost £50.000 has this happend to anyone else with the cattle trailer?February 3, 2014 at 01:03 #27914
