    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.
