Read my thread about Mersea- quite honestly you would need your head examined if you buy anything from them - up to you but I thought the whole point of forums like this was to gauge other members experiences etc. Do what you like but for me and anybody else who have dealt with Mersea - I doubt many will do it again!

I have not bought a pre-fab trailer from these guys, but their parts service is brilliant:

many of the trailer manufacturers show contact details for email
on their websites, and yet only one I have emailed has bothered to reply.

Great input everyone...please keep the replies coming.

Most of the suggestions are for trailers over the 2K mark at the size I want.

I am specifically interested in feedback from owners of Becktons
1750 for a 1500kg gvw roller trailer, and Extreme trailers 1749 for the same.
These prices seem to be the best and include VAT.

thanks

they are re-selling SBS trailers I think.
SBS are a bit out of my price range.

Trailer

I bought a new 3000kg trailer from Becktons after giving up on getting parts or information on the Rapide that I inherited.

I've had the new one for a couple of months, done almost 1000 miles and a dozen launches and am very happy with it now that the rollers are all set up.

Ta-also appreciated. I've never tried dealing with them. If they are like that, it's a damn shame as Dixon-Bate's customer service was exemplary.
