BTW, My mother still has dad's old Stema hanging about. Needs a bit of TLC - broken hinge on tail gate, could do with new lights etc etc but anyone who is familiar with these trailers (East German) will know that they are really solid jobs and worth the effort.

I have a trailer I was given by a neighbor and the floor is rotten. Grass and weeds growing out of the wood. Needs everything replacing and some welding doing. Think it's ripe for the scrap heap. Never attempted to put a engine in because I think we all know what the outcome would be, not sure what DSVA would say about a mobile garden centre. ������

Would it be AM-MARC?

They seem good value. Might look into one of those.

Still looking for something suitable, might have to modify a biscuit tin of wheels at this rate which will bring down the loading weight.

You have been pontificating about buying a suitable trailer for 18months now. Various suggestions have been made, which you seem to have ignored for various reasons.

Your best bet will be to go to a trailer manufacturer and talk to them about your requirements. They will then be able to advise you what model of trailers they supply which are suitable for your needs. There are plenty of manufacturers in the UK or dealers for trailers built abroad. You have plenty to choose from.

I also thought I'd just modify one to suit Ollie, which is why I ended up with that home built thing. It sat on the drive for 6 months and never got any further than an idea in my head..

Buy something decent and save yourself the trouble, you don't need to spend a lot to get something sturdy and up to the job. My neighber has a little unbraked Wessex trailer, it's a sturdy build and they turn up all the time at sensible prices, ideal for the sort of engines you have.

Phill.
