    "Every retro-reflector required to be fitted to a vehicle or load in terms of these regulations shall not be lower than 300 millimetres and not higher than one
    comma five metres from ground level, measured to the centre of the retroreflector: The following must be adhered;


     A trailer or caravan first registered on or after 1 January 2004 be
    permanently affixed with side and rear contour markings.

    If, due to the design of the vehicle, it is impossible to fit retro-reflectors on the
    sides of the body of such vehicle at the prescribed height, the retro-reflectors
    shall be fitted as near as possible to such height. "

    As far as I can see, this should be attached on at LEAST 80% of the length and width.
