2005 Car Transporter tilt bed covered trailer For Sale
This is a high quality beautifully engineered tilt bed Chris Fountain Trailer car transporter in very nice condition. Covered bed is 14 feet x 6 feet with full 6 feet height. Strongarm type tilt bed hydraulic pump conversion mounted nearside of A frame for ease of access and safety. Much better than central mounted. Dual gear winch mounted offside with cable pull through central mounted snatch block running across full width crossbeam mount roller. Perfect for tilt bed application. Prevents cable snag and allows straight cable run back to snatch block when winched vehicle not centrally hooked as is nearly always the case when using brother strap or similar arrangement. Much better than fairlead. Steel tube frame and cover can be removed in one piece, simply unbolts. It's light and easy to lift. Beautifully made GT Covers frame and cover bespoke made about five years ago. Frame has aluminium streamliner plate. Below streamliner the cover unzips either side for full frontal access. Rear has full height zipped barn door with internal velcro number plate window. Both sides give full height driver and passenger door zipped access. GT Covers replaced a vandalised section a couple of months ago so the complete cover has been serviced and maintained by them and is like new. At a cost of nearly £500. The steel runners are 17 inch wide with the timber panelled floor another 38 inches width giving a full working flat floor of 6 feet width. The steel runners and floor panel are in excellent condition. ‘A’ frame and chassis are in perfect condition and never been damaged. Recently replaced jockey wheel, Maypole heavy duty 48mm ribbed type with R clip lock. All four tyres recently replaced. Spare is as new. Has front and rear LED lighting. Trailer tows beautifully. It's strong light and easy to use and easy to manoeuvre by hand also. It's lovely and dry and surprisingly warm inside in winter! It can carry longer overhanging vehicles with the barn door open and taller vehicles with cover removed. Recently carried Merc Vito van over 200 miles with ease. It has the weight and size carrying capacity when you need it yet the benefits of a shorter length when you don't. It's been used occasionally since 2012 mainly for transporting show winning classic Mini's to various events and not used commercially. Hence its very good condition despite its age. I will give it a service this week so you know it's good to go. I do have papers for it but buggered if I can find them. Universal Trailers were its first owners as stamped on the drawbar. A full motor trade business receipt will be given with purchase. I can deliver anywhere UK Europe - cost by negotiation. As a side note. Don't miss out if you're in need of a car transporter trailer. I'm hearing scare stories of foreign made / supplied trailer parts being unobtainable due to stopping of flights worldwide. If your trailer's laid up this one could be for you.
