New twin axle trailer wanted.

I'm looking to buy a twin axle trailer over the winter period (redundancy and I think our current trailer is close to the weight limit)
Therefore I have two questions to the team:
1.You need to buy a new twin axle roller coaster type trailer, what make would you buy and why?
2. Trade in value or "ebay" value of a VGC degraff 1300kg single axle roller coaster type trailer.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I would recommend Extreme Trailers in Southampton. They have built several new trailers for us at very good prices! Nice product too. 023 8063 9278.

Value of your existing trailer? Depends on what it is and how well it functions?
You get what you settle for!

I would also recommend De Graaff, probably the best value for the guys are very helpful...

Also phone around your local suppliers, i recently picked up a brand new Hallmark roller coaster 3 for my brother in law from my local indespension dealer, for 500 less then he had been quoted from another supplier...

Also consider SBS, snipe...

SBS, deal direct with the factory. Good product & price. I'm on my second.
