trailer features

Whats the best feature you have on your trailer or have seen on another trailer. Or would like to see on your trailer

I'll give you a starter

I saw a trailer the other day that had wheel chocks that went into holders welded on the frame

I like those Camel RIBs with a roof rack big enough to carry the trailer on after launching to stop it getting nicked

I have only seen pictures of Bedajim's trailer, but from what I've seen, he has got the right idea.

I saw a trailer once with automatic chocks. They where pieces of wood that where suspended from either side of the mudgaurd and trailed just behind each wheel. When he stopped the boat on the slipway so that he could reverse up remove the rope that attached the car to trailer, the boat rolled back slightly against the chocks and arrested its decent. When he'd hitched up the chocks where raised and attached to the trailer.

I saw something like this on a Fred Dibner program, it was used on a Horse drawn Gypsy Caravan and would be used up steep hills.

The best feature of my trailer is its big yellow fibreglass and Hypalon cover that catches all the rain and stops the trailer getting wet.

I'd like a motorised jockey thing that doesn't break the bank and can be removed for storage/security.

I could buy two and a half trailers for that much, or employ a man to service my bearings and brakes for me 2 times a year for life!
