Trailer Parts

Afternoon everybody.

I'm looking for a reasonably priced source for parts for my rapide roller 5 trailer. Unfortunately it has to be by mail as it's a bit of a problem for me to nip to a dealer!

Cheers

Ian

I'm looking to replace all the washers(2") and split pins on the rollers and would also prefer to change the u bolts(approx 8" long by 2.5" wide) holding the t piece of the drawbar to the side struts.

Thanks.

Ian

Thank you for the info. Unfortunately there are not very many engineers merchants around the Scillies so online it will have to be.

Regards

Ian

I did this last year. Had to go to the manafacturer (degraaf)for the washers. But I used stainless steel split pins bought online, http://www.s3i.co.uk/splitpin.php for example.
So at least when your washers turn to dust the pin should be ok and stop you from losing a roller.

I had a bad experiance with these guys.

The website said next day delivery for the wheel I needed, I paid by credit card and ordered on line.

What they don't say is 'next day - once we have it in stock'. It took 4 weeks to arrive after lots of calls and broken promises.

Trailertec for me everytime.
Friendly, very knowledgable people.

Nasher.

If you are going to use Stainless Steel split pins I recommend you use S/S washers also, I did and they are still serviceable!! Indeed, I replaced all the bolts and nuts with S/S versions as all the original fasteners corroded much more quickly than the main structures of the trailer. A liberal coating of Waxoil, on all internal and external surfaces ensures longevity of the upgrade.
