Right i bought this to do the car shows next year, but now i have an XM estate big enough to sleep in I don't need it. First off, I've never opened it out to check it although the owner stored it in a garage and assured me it was ok. It has no top cover with it, I used a tarp to get it home. Its a braked trailer with a spare wheel. The link below shows the very poor pictures from when I got it off ebay. I need it to go this weekend, as i need to put a car in the garage. It the tent bit is knackered you've a cracking basis to make a braked car trailer for tip runs etc. It towed fantastic at 70 mph behind my Bx. Collect from coventry, can't deliver as my only ca with a towball has sprung another leak.

Proper bargain assuming the canvas isn't knackered...

Very tempting. Let me just work out logistics as it's too heavy to tow with trike.

Slightly better tow capacity than trike. Trike can tow 500kg,weight plate states 600kg so I won't risk it. Just trying to see if I can get it sorted.

Is that the Smart in the background on the pics? I recognise that from the Smart forums years ago. Thought it had long since disappeared!

We must all step in! I'll pick it up tomorrow, store it in Herefordshire. Once I've finished the BX I'm storing there I will tow it back to Bristol. Then someone else can take it to the North East combining it with a collekshun fred, then finally it gets towed behind a bike to Glasgow. Another one saved!

Could be shitefest sorted then! Tow it on the trike and we can help you assemble it!

Bonus points if you don't touch it beforehand so it's the first time you find out it's no good...

It's not going to be used as a trailer tent anymore. It will live it's life in as a more fulfilling venture! Shitefest sleeping arrangements are catered for courtesy of the French!
