Hi mate,
You mentioned you were after a trailer as well, this looks ideal:

Its actually for sale through Olmec Tubing, Ed posts on here as Ribraff and their tubes are very good. It may be worth approaching him and seeing if he will do you a deal for a new set of tubes and the trailer! They are based in Devon, and I have heard only good things about their tube work.

Hi Lurcher for new tubes you could try the following, in no particular order of preference:-

Henshaw Inflatables - Wincanton
Paul Tilley Tubes - Dartmouth
Olmec Tubes - Dartmouth

Not cheap but quality job, generally, by these.

PS Marquee Hire? might be interested in trade of A Frame/RIB goodies in exchange for Marquee during Southampton Boat Show if you are up for it?

With regards to screen cheapest option is to try and scrounge an offcut of acrylic from any local sheet plastic supplier - if you cant find one try signwriters.
