    In a way the look very cool and I am sure they are useful but all those nuts and bolts would do my head in.. especially after they get covered in road grime

    The only thing I really do not like about those things is the fact there is no way to lock down the cam tighteners ..
    If they pop up ( far from unheard of ) the nut could easily drop off the other side.
    If I was using one I would get some bungy chords just to hold down the cam arms..

    Type approval isn't an issue on anything except the newest motorhomes/trailers is it?
    Having had a quick look then these would have to be type approved trailers since 2012 in order to be sold. Assuming you've got a type approved towbar.. etc etc

    If you mean the trailer in the video perhaps you could arrange for the owner to contact me so we can talk about maybe how he gets on wit it or perhaps if the price is right who knows

    Hi Adrian, sorry about the delay but its the sites Christmas party today, had a word with him and he has someone that is interested in the trailer and the car for £7000, so we will see. :xgrin:

    But as for talking about it, he is the father of the chap that makes them. xroll::xdoh:
    But seeing it on his pitch, and compared with our smart trailer we had, its a brilliant idea but comes with large price tag. :xlaugh: Bob.

    They where on show at Peterborough. Had a Look, they appear to be well constructed. But that (also) means they are expensive, for what they are? (a Trailer)

    Still an interesting concept, and would be something to look out for Second hand?.

    A Friend had a Smart Trailer (an older Brian James with folding Draw-bar) on site at La Manga, he Boarded it out, rigged his Gazebo over it and used it to party and Barbecue!!.
