Boro Car Trailers from Poland???
In my quest to buy a car trailer in the next two weeks I went to see one advertised by a company called Jakpol Trailers in Birmingham. They (he?) sells trailers manufactured in Poland from a company called Boro. He only had a single axle one suitable for me which tilted in an unusual way. There was no Hydraulic pump just two gas struts which allowed the bed to tilt in a controlled way. You drive onto the tilted trailer and at the appropriate load it slowly (i hope?) drops down. Same when unloading. I like it. Simple and neat. The trailer seemed well made with Alko axle and Knott parts though it did not have a lockable hitch which made me think it would be very easy to steal overnight in a stopover?
The tyres were the GT6000 Kargomax ones which hey ho, are good enough but not difficult to change if not. Thing is, I couldn't get on it cos the Audi A1 front bumper was a tad to low. He suggested we put 13" wheels on it instead of 14" and that would solve the problem. Not sure if it would or not but still the single axle niggles me. It can take a 1,400kg load max kerb weight being 1,800kg.
Thing is, is it true that in the UK the max kerb weight for single axle trailers is 1,500kg? If so, it's defo a no goer.
Arrgghh! Nobody holds stock of a tilting small trailer!!!! I could get a sofa delivered quicker I think!
back to the drawing board.
