    Am looking at buying a Smart car and trailer. Which is the best one to go for as these things are far to modern for my brain. I will not be Aframing so that will not be a problem. Have looked at a tilting Smart trailer and think maybe this would be best.
    I will be selling my Joyner buggy and trailer as we are not getting the use from it. If anyone has one for sale please let me know and likewise if anyone is looking for a road legal buggy please contact me before I put it on the bay.

    Sorry ours has sold, but a great little car behind a motorhome, the only thing I will say Dave they are a hard ride, :Wink: but having seen your buggy I would say you would find it comfortable, and most important warm and dry.:Rofl1: Bob.

    This one is mine and comes complete with trailer and cover. Long tax and MOT. Two sets of wheels and tyres, one set off road, one set on road.

    Not sure that I would bother with a tilting trailer. I had a Brian James trailer that I was very happy with. Came with ramps to run the car onto the trailer and it waseasy to load. Didn't feel the combination behind the motorhome and made a very slight difference to fuel consumption.
