Registered July 2010 (10 plate)

"Beagle's Pup" aka "Bertie" and "Sluggy" has history. Sold by @Minxy Girl in July 2017 (complete with puppy paws decals and furry dice) to @Mr Chrysalis who had it converted to a toad with the addition of the Armstrong A-frame www.armstrongtrailers.com

In October 2017 we bought it so that we could get off the campsites and rally fields and explore. It's great to tow and you have full confidence in the well-engineered A-frame. As we are giving up motorhoming we are offering our Smartie for anyone else who fancies the independence of a separate small vehicle.

The Smart is a great run-around and many of the qualities of a Mercedes. It has the full auto/semi-auto soft-touch 5 speed gear box so you can choose to have full auto or semi-auto at the touch of a button. It also has gear change paddles on the steering wheel/column for slick manual changing - sporty model with the bigger fatter tyres! Micro Hybrid Drive stop/start 'fuel economy' system. Option to turn this on/off with the press of a button.

Quite a feature is the electric convertible soft top. Can be used in full 'top down' mode or 'targa' top - removable side bars too.

Regularly serviced and maintained by Mercedes Benz agent. Serviced September 2018. MOT July 2018
Battery and wheel cylinders recently replaced along with four new tyres
Current mileage 22046 Asking price £3,650

Can I ask how braking is done? Electric or on a brake on the towbar?

Do I need any other electrics other that my normal 7 pin socket?

The A frame hitches to the tow bar of the motorhome. It is a 7 pin socket.

The braking is mechanical from the A frame. I think the description on the Armitage website could help. www.armitagetrailers.com

Thanks, Interested. Maybe pop over soon to have a look.


Dumb question! Are you by any chance heading over the Mids area any time soon?

Cat's paws ... CAT'S PAWS!!!! :eek:

I'll have you know they are dog paws ... it took me ages to get our Lily to stick her paw in the paint and make them all matching! :D2

@Minxy Girl A case of Chinese Whispers then. I'm so pleased they are dog's paws with a name like Beagle's Pup. :LOL:

Managed to 'edit' the advertisement. Hope you approve.

Hello Abacist yes the Smart car is still for sale but we’re on the Suffolk/Norfolk borders. If you were interested in just the A frame and getting another car converted, that could possibly be couriered to you. Just a thought as we’re a long way from Devon. Cheers, Pamela

I am not bothered by the distance but I need my wife to have a go in a Smart. She thinks she won’t feel safe in it! Our Moho and Audi already have towbars so it would be easy to collect. Please bear with us whilst I sort this out. Robert

Tell your wife she'll love him ... Smarts are such fun beasties to drive and make you smile all the time! We've had a few Smarts (don't ask!) and now have the latest 453 version called Errol (as in Brown). He's our only car having swapped our 4-seater Twingo for him but I still prefer the older ones and 'Sluggy' as he was known (due to him being all black, nothing to do with speed!) is a corker! (y)

We have had 2 Smart for two's over the last 10 years, currently a 2011 night orange. The wife loves them, wouldn't let me sell the current one (not that I want to) and we feel very safe in them. They are a bit like Dr who's TARDIS, look tiny from the outside but are surprisingly roomy inside. Very economical to own and run and great fun.

We too have a smart almost identical to the one for sale. My wife loves it and feels completely safe in it, ncap rating highest in class. Loads a room even for me. Use it as a toad occasionally as well.

We have our pharmacy staff BBQ on Saturday and we always invite the previous owner who is a Smart fanatic so I’ll get them to have a chat together and maybe she’ll let Margaret have a go.

Can a wheelchair fit in the boot?
Depends on the size of chair but I would say yes, you don't wanna know what we've had stuff in our Smarties! :D

I'm not an expert but I believe some of the later Smart models are not suitable for towing. I think if you do a search on here you will pick up more information.

Hello TizzyOnTour
There has been some interest but no viewers yet. Smart car is therefore still for sale. It goes in for its MOT on 18th July.
