    Enclosed trailer V2.0

    Two years on and I've now sold my original enclosed trailer, decided I needed a bit more room. after looking on line for quite a while, nothing seemed to be the right fit, so custom made was the decision. i spoke with pretty much every trailer builder, all had good and bad points, from the really cheep to the ridiculously expensive. Basically I need to be able to fit both bikes, fuel, gear and a Tyre machine in. with that in mind I initially thought id go with a trailer rated to 3 Tone, that way I would be covered in all circumstances, draw back of that was that the trailer would be locked to only my hilux for towing which i was OK with until i took a 2nd hand trailer over the weigh bridge and it came in at close to 1700kgs !!!just way to heavy to chuck one bike in for a quick ride day....

    So my list of requirements now included a bare weight of aprox 800kgs, allowing a payload of 1200Kgs ( enough to get all my gear in for a race weekend) that way I could tow it with the wife's car (or most other cars) , and then use it for family holidays moving lounges ect ect. now its not just a race trailer also

    This weight limit seemed to put off a few of the builders, but I eventually went with Keith from KRB Engineering in the Hnunter valley http://www.krbengineering.com.au/ basically I spoke with Keith over the course of a few weeks and he seemed to have a solution to all of my issues, and was happy with the weight requirement.

    So the trailer will be 4600mm Long Plus draw bar, 2200 wide, and 1950 high

    Initially I wanted the height to be 1600 ( to allow the tyre machine) with a pop up roof, however being quite long the roof structure would need a fair bit of reinforcement to make it secure adding weight, to make it shorter would leave the possibility of leaks so a fixed roof with decent head clearance was decided on. Heat was one of my main concerns, but to combat this were installing dual roof to ventilators ( like what you see on a caravan) one forward, one reverse to circulate air, these will be switched, and have a thermostat so that the come on automatically, and ran off a solar panel / battery.
    KRB put an automatic tail gate motor on all there trailers so thats pretty cool, it'll also have led lights, internal mesh, dual drop axles, a new style of electric breaks that doesn't require connection or specific wiring to the tow vhicle, wifi reverse camera. dual side doors and a front shelf at 1050mm high so my roller tool cabinet can be pushed in. I'm going with Grey this time, black was just to hot previously.

    it should be ready soon just waiting on some of the accessories to come in but here’s a sneak Peak.

    Holy hot hell, this is going to be amazing!!
    It never occurred to me to get one custom made for your needs. I just sorta squeezed all I could in to an existing one.
    Great Idea, Luke. Can't wait to see it all decked out!

    These arrived today, not a known brand, just an eBay special, but the look pretty solid. I was specifically after front chocks without a wide brace, so I can easily wheel the tyre machine between them

    They look great, Luke. Assuming fitment of a 17" front wheel is ok out of the box?

    Yep they’re fine, the side brace is higher than the disk but its wide enough to clear and is directed into the correct position by the initial wheel guide.
