The Kögel Euro Trailer complies with specifications relating to circular tracks and can be used on all existing infrastructure without any adaptation. This means that it takes the strain off the roads, as fewer vehicles are needed to achieve the same transport volume. When travelling on the specified circuit with a 25 m diameter (BO-Kraftkreis, German ordnance regulating motor vehicles) the trailer does not clip the interior circle of 5.30 m. The distance it swings out is less than the permitted 0.80 m.
