    If you're in Cape Town, it's easiest to just get these from us, but otherwise Tygerberg rubber, Pro-auto rubber, Waynes Rubber all stock a similar size. On a 2010 model that rubbers will no doubt be...

    Re: What price for trailer?

    I think it's too high. It's a top loader, and for that price you can get a brand new Genie manufactured in Stainless steel, and probably fit second hand accessories for 12k. If you're not getting...

    This looks very good. Its excellent value for money.

    As a sidenote, when you put angles into a trailer/caravan, you compromise the practical door layouts and internal fitout. This is what I...

    Re: Trailer handbrake dissengaging?

    It must arrest the trailer in a rear motion. There is a spec which I recall being at 8 degrees?

    A simple explanation of how this works, is that in the forward motion there is no "tolerance". In...

    Re: Trailer Fabrication

    IMO you've over- specced the strength of the spacing rack, I'd guess you'd get away with 25 x 25 x 2.0 mm tube and ditch the crossbracing - some smaller plate gussets will suffice. My concern is that...

    The mattress is in two "halves" (more like one and two thirds) and sewn together along the top edge, so it just hinges over along this edge and cannot separate during use. Note that depending on the...

    If the spindle is broken off as shown, it's not worth trying to repair. The best you can do is to recut a new spindle on the end of the 45 x 45 square axle - thereby shortening it. But even this will...
