Take a tape measure with you because I think the trailer draw bar is going to limit you. Ribshop also have a 4m Avon, might be worth Sea trialing them both to see which you prefer.

Couple of alternatives if you can engineer a removeable draw bar or as someone in Old Portsmouth did and put a cone on to there garage door for the trailer to fit. (with a bigger engine)

Ribnet is best viewed on a computer of some sort
