LOLz.The upside is that it's just a couple of minutes from Pog Towers, oh and it's about as cheap as a twin-axle trailer can be. Downside is that apparently since the pics were taken, one of the wheels has come off: seems some bloke bought it then proceeded to try and tow it away with a stuck hub, resulting in some damage. Still, it will be balanced enough to recover and shouldn't be too hard to fix.

Nice one. Looks like a reyt heavy bastid though, probably need a Landie to tow that :lol:What are the wheels off? Look like mid 1980s 320i or Pug 505 rims to me

They appear to be 5-stud BMW affairs.
No idea how heavy it will be. Though I have stuffed a bid on this, just in case like:

Excellent work - I think you should paint it up in full Autoshite livery and volunteer for all recovery missions.

That Land Rover lived round the corner from me until a few weeks ago! Didn't look too bad overall - the rear crossmember looked to have been home fabricated so I'd want to have a look how well attached to the chassis it was before towing anything particularly heavy. The previous owner had been trying to sell it for ages (on and off) and it doesn't seem that this one's kept it long - that might mean something, or it could just be to do with the price of petrol...(btw - I am also the proud owner of a cheapo car trailer which weighs as much as the moon. It feels really heavy behind the 110 even with nothing on it!)

I'm surprised at the weight of some trailers, I was towing a twin-axle Ifor Williams effort with my Saab and it felt like somebody had put a 1.5 B-series diesel under the bonnet.
