trailer prices

Post by gordon shenton » Wed Apr 02, 2008 9:56 am

I need a new road trailer for my Swift 18.
Can anyone tell me the type to look for, new or second hand. Also an idea of cost.
Many thanks

trailer prices

Just ordered a Riba trailer for a Micro, 750 kg max weight, 180 kg dry weight, unbraked, price 2215 EUR / approx 1500 GBP... But this trailer is probably just too small for a Swift. Bad luck.

Did you check out the one in the 'For Sale' section?

Thanks Terry
the trailer you mention is not suitable.
I should also mention that I do have a trailer but its unbraked and I'm not sure about the legal requirments for towing with it.
Regards
Gordon

Greetings all,
I have just bought a Swift18 on a good braked trailer - an Aqua trailer from Talywain Gwent though i can't find them on a website. It has a Bradley HU3H key lockable coupling. I have noticed that many pictures of Swifts show an Aqua trailer though a downside of mine is that it has the 'agricultural' 5 stud bolted hubs and 6"x9" tyres which are £70 each! Here is a picture. It carries the weight fine and is easy to load onto. I believe modern breakback trailers are favouredd these days.

A centre roller has been removed which appears to aid the drop keel position.

Your trailer is exactly like mine and mine is a SBS trailer
(Wolverhampton). Yours could be a modified version because I don't
believe the original trailers had 5 studs!!
