Go for it, it's the best there is for your money. It took me a lot of trouble getting it from Cornwall to Holland, etc. But I'm glad I did!!!
And don't worry about trailering it on your own. Very, very easy as I mentioned it.

Steady on chaps.....

She might read this, then you, or more pertinently, I am in trouble!

My beloved wife distinguished herself on ohh about our third date by leaping off the boat upto her knees in the River Thames and winching it on the trailer. It was about that time I thought 'Hmm she's the girl for me!'

I think 22K with a trailer is more like it!
What do you think?

Small friendly business , bought two trailers off them in the last 2 years and they replaced the axles on Old Spice's RM trailer with a type of bearings that aren't "sealed for life Alko type" so at least I stand a chance of stripping them down.
