will NOT fit in a container, RoRo is best I reckon.
Option now is a flatrack, 5300 euro's.... 8-|

The owner had a motorcycle-accident few weeks ago (there is a DRZ-400 on the back of the camper) so I try to ship it back for the family a.s.a.p.

Container (or flatrack ;-)) sharing is an option! Anyone needs to ship a car back to Europe? Seems this flatrack goes to Hamburg, Germany.

Hi,
I'm in Arica at the moment and do some research on how to ship back my sidecar back to Europe. Do you still have some space in your container and fancy some container sharing?
We have a mobile phone here if it is easier for you to call: (9) 71441294
Kind regards from Arica,
Philipe

tried to send you a PM, but just in case:
please contact jan_knee*2003*AT*yahoo*co*m (bit without the *'s ;-))
She (Marianne) is the owner of the camper, and from now on in charge of the shipment! (I just helped her out from Iquique, as I was in the area)
