Re: comp truck trailer

DIY mate.

Just building a tilt single axle for my little bro's drifter.
You cannot compare home built to commercial one's.

This one has cost near 3k... but has hydro disc brakes, IRS rubber axle, and all the best fittings / wheels.
I have spent 6 hours on it and its nearly half done.
Could have built it in a day if I had all the parts first.

Re: comp truck trailer

I looked around for a while, the best new trailer I found was a tilting flat deck Chinese import thing at about $8k which I was looking at putting pockets in for the front wheels to drop into to lower the COG. it had a hydraulic ram for the tilt action, the drawbar hinged down.
I ended up getting a good trailer second hand right place right time from a bloke who'd had enough and was getting out of it.

what weight you looking to carry? I know of one that will carry 2.2 tonne that could be up for grabs

Re: comp truck trailer

HAHAHA I love the fact that you have a Zook towing it around.... The brakes on the trailer would be pulling you up.

Re: comp truck trailer

I found BATC = Brisbane Axle & Trailer Components at Tingalpa for a very reasonable price & the job quality is exelent. They just modded my Aussie swag camper trailer to a tandom wheel with electric breaks, a 2mtr x 1.6 tray on the front for the dirt bikes & a roof top tent above that for the kids. so mum & dad area at the back & with storage & bikes at the front & kids above that.
