Does the trailer HAVE to be street legal..

If you are towing with an agricultural tractor I suspect the law on brakes and suspension is different.

For 5 tonnes an axle off a scrapped semi trailer will do the trick..

It looks like we are going to go with one from RM, they have given a very good quote and lead time for one.

Agree with this. He totally adjusted our standard riba trailer in order to have a perfected balanced one. They really know their job!

They can make any type of trailer on request up to 10T.

Those trailers look awesome - are they legal for towing behind a Land Rover?

And what happens if they get dunked in sea water - looks a lot to go wrong!!!

Bet they not cheap either............
