    WTB Gavlanised Trailer

    So I am after a trailer around the 7'x4', also wanting a cage for it.

    Just looking at what is out there or any recommendations to have one built for a good price here in the mighty Manawatu.

    Cheers

    Has anyone had dealings with "Trayla" trailers in Levin? or "Kings" trailers in Wanganui?

    we got a trayla single axel and so far so good good price also got a foxton that seems a bit cheaply made and we towed it with a van for about 30000kms a few things wore on it but was ok but don't think I would get one again . but our briford did well over 100000kms and only needed wheelberings so I guess you get what you pay for. but dave hobbs (trayla) would be a go and can make any size you like

    Thanks Dale. Will have to pop in tomorrow and have a chat to Dave. How does your trayla compare with the briford?

    I would say it's built strong but ground the number plate holder on the rear is hung low and we have bent it towing it getting wood. Would be better on the wheel arch. But we haven't pulled it as much as the others but it seems nice

    Bent the number plate holder? or the trailer?

    Yea I see that it sits rather low, at least the lights are to the sides.

    So decided to get a 7'x4'6". Brent Smith came back at $2730! I know there a good trailer but that much? Ruled Trayla trailers out as a few people have since warned me off them. A place down in wellington called "trailer Centre" (Tailux) have come back at $2400 a seem to be a great build... Any one heard of these guys?
