Two Part Trailer at Last - When Caravaning

For some time now I have wanted a trailer you can take apart easily and put in my caravan with the Honwave T38 all rolled up in the boot of the car. The purpose is so we can go away in the caravan and when at the camp site blow up the sib and put it on a trailer to use during the week we are away. Save blowing up and down each use.

I had a small T style Road trailer (that was legal in its day) that came with my Small 3.4 m Rib. This little Rib needed a new trailer so I have now created my sectional trailer from that. Assuming it was once road legal and all I have done is repair it I think it is still legal. Either way I will only be towing my T38 (50kg ish) short distances so no real worry.

I will not tow with the engine on the boat.

All I have to do to put it together is join with 4 bolts and all done.

It is also small enough so that I can put it under the Disco at the car park so you only have to pay for one parking space.

I even think it would go in our Mondeo estate with a little bit of wriggling.

Obviously it needs a clean up and a little paint perhaps. and to keep mess out of the caravan or Mondeo I will just put bags over the wheels.

Each part is easy for one person to carry.

So there you go I got there in the end

I will put some foam over the supports to protect the air floor

The light board will hang from the transom of the boat

I have now split the Draw bar away from the Head section to make it a little lighter to handle..... Now a total of 6 bolts but still doable.

The axel part can be lifted by one person but better with 2

Make sure you wrap the sharp end in some bubble wrap before you put it in your caravan
if you brake hard it could penetrate the front and bury its self into the gas bottle .
