    My Weeks trailer doesn't have the original floor, it does have its original ram which still works fine considering it was built in 1973.

    Talking of weeks trailers, I got this yesterday.

    It's mint, will be replacing the Tye trailer. Pretty sure it'll be kept. Should of bought the pair really.

    Mate bought four of the other trailers

    This one will be used behind our 3000. Leading soil - no muck!

    Yeah, went for a look really but I thought you don't see them that good often and I had trailer with me so thought might aswell.

    Kind of wish I'd got the pair now.

    That's a very tidy and original trailer. Do you mind if we ask how much you paid for it?

    £1,250. Don't mind at all.

    My eyes that was a good price, other might think differently?

    Hey, as long as you're happy. You could say its a lot for an old trailer or you could say they don't make them anymore and where would you find a better one?

    All that matters is you could afford it and it will make you happy

    There was 7 weeks there and a timber tipping trailer with no sides. Didn't see any salops?

    We've always preferred to pay more for decent stuff than repair / restore.

    I do regret not getting them both now but it would of meant another trip which I didn't want to do.

    Bit of a spur of the moment thing but never seen one as good so thought what the hell

    Well I would say you had a good buy there. I would have paid that for it as it looks great behind a classic tractor.
