Big trailer


Anyone want to buy a big trailer?

14'8" x 6'8" load bed, IIRC.

overall dimensions about 8'6"x 18', roughly. It's maximum width, anyway.

tilt/kneel bed for loading, works off a manual hydraulic pump. completely
level when loading, no ramp breakover, so it'll load things like citroens
with failed suspension...

4 wheeler, on 185R14C tyres. Plate on the side suggests it'll carry 1.5T,
but I've successfully hauled the 110 and 2 sorts of disco on it. Disco II
might not fit with the rear tailgate shut... 110 and disco I go on it with
about 1" to spare.

Tows on a NATO hitch at the lower height (level with 110 rear crossmember)
and I have an adapter for it which goes on the normal dixon-bate type
adjustable hitch rails - you need rails with 2" hole spacing and 4 holes for
this to work, as it uses the top and bottom holes.

For a 90/110 you can bolt the NATO hook to the crossmember direct.

cost me about 900 notes, ISTR. Offers around 500 will get serious
consideration. Can deliver.


If no-one bites it's going on eBay.

Austin, am seriously interested matey, am heading down your way (well, north
wales!) end of the month to complete my gas installer's course so I could
collect then. 500 sounds ok, I assume the tyres and lights are all legal
for a trip to the North of Scotland? Need to sort out how to hitch it up to
the back of the Disco II though, as that's what I'll be taking with me.
E-mail me direct if you wish, with further details (make/model/age/any
piccies??) and we'll sort something out hopefully.
Badger.

wrong (old) address: reply-to (from) works on this message although it's
more likely to get attention by removing the obvious spamtrap.

if your email works, then you should have a fat email with piccies attached.
