Bailey and
Richard Weston

Out of your options it would be the Richard Western. However if you want the best it has to be between Ktwo, Stewart, Larrington or HM. Second hand trailers are rarley worth buying when you consider the price of them for the age, stick a new one on 0% finance and it will last you 20 years easily if it's looked after.

Why not one of the many British makes?

I had 14t FieldMasters on floatations (BKT), manual rear door/hatch. Air over oil, load sensing brakes, sprung drawbar leds etc and they were £11200 each + Vat but this is going back 8 years, had them sprayed in red and can say the paint is still as good as new.
At the end of the day I couldnt see much difference between a Smyth and a Bailey when I looked over one at a show not long after I bought mine

Have had a look at a few trailers recently and came accross PK Trailers. Looks identical to an older Ktwo trailer, however cannot find out much about them but probably worth a look.
