Pallet with some sturdy castors on to roll around once on the ground.

Couple of big sturdy poles to slot through pallet to lift it off the trailer with a couple of helpers.

We got TPA out the van by sticking a ladder underneath in exactly that way.  Front was lifted to ground level, then we slotted the ladder under just in front of the rear wheels, me on one side, husband the other.  Easy.  Trailer should be even easier as you'll have better access rather than trying to work around stupid bloody Transit doors that don't open nearly wide enough.

Would have been far easier if I'd have realised at the time that taking half a turn off the brake adjusters would have made her roll once we got to the ground!

Could be a good place to find some parts contacts that show.

Your Jubilee Robin brings back a memory of my dad wanting to trade his 21E Regal VKP881J for a Jubilee saloon at Friday's garage in Gravesend circa 1981.


Much to my upset the sale never happened as they wouldn't give him enough for the 21E and instead he bought JKN306N a caramel 750 Robin from A.A Hitch and son in Maidstone.

A A Hitch - in Knightrider Street IIRC! Remember that place (Ex-Maidstone resident). Sold Suzuki's as well I think? Just looked on Google maps - hell, that's almost all totally changed!
