Australian MacGregor 26 trailer wanted

Post by DownSouth » Thu Apr 27, 2017 7:08 pm

Looking for a trailer in Australia.

Does anyone have an old original trailer sitting around after upgrading?

Any leads appreciated.

You just missed one in Sydney, trailer looked a bit crappy but had single drop axles on it, I thought it was a bit rich at $2000 given the condition

Sorry Downsouth, I just towed mine to the tip, still in working order but full of rust. Go to the Australian page to see the new trailer I just bought, it works very well. Available in all states if you want to buy new.

Cheers, Dennis.

Have you put your boat on its new trailer over the weighbridge, interested as to how much it weighs now as a package, the X on its crappy factory OEM trailer empty does not have much headroom to be below the magic 2000Kg mark we all crave for

Trailer found!

It's a tandem and I intend to set it up for 2800kg.

Weights and photos to follow but don't hold your breath it will take a while :)
