Some will remember the raffles we had last year for the new marquee. Well that money bought a nice new £1150, 12m by 6m marquee which yesterday I crammed it into our new two ton trailer along with the 6m by 4m hospitality tent and everything else we need to run the rally. It was looking a bit heavy so I thought I'd pop along to the weighbridge; better safe than sorry. The trailer was only 388kg overweight which also put my back axle 40kg over too! :eek::eek:

So we've just had to hire a van for the week to the tune of £300 so we can take the marquee to the Newbury Show :cry::cry::cry: Gutted

You will just have to leave the beer at home JIm. That'll get the trailer under weight (y)

I know it does not help now , but would one of those 3 axel trailers farmers use for moving livestock solve the problem. Am guessing it would reduce nose weight having 3 axels.

Its not mate, then I've got to fuel it and the RV ...Bummer... I'll be insisting NO ONE leaves the marquee before midnight each night, just so I can get my monies worth ;)
No good if you cannot have music in it (Chester;)):D--Little fuel no water and Sian driving = 1/2 TON SAVING WITHOUT TRYING

On the plus side, the marquee does look splendid, we are just getting the little one off to bed, then we may investigate further :)
