Hi all

My first post on here! I've recently purchased a Harford 3 ton tipping trailer and I am looking to do it up. I am looking for reference pictures of the trailer "as new" but I am struggling to find much info at all on them.

Struggling to figure out paint colours etc... and would love to recreate stickers etc....

Any pics, advice or ideas greatly appreciated!! Thanks

Here`s mine last year,all original apart from wheels and tyres.The H logo sticker has long gone though.Think the logo was a yellow H on a black background on the sloping part of the drawbar strenghthener.My brain keeps seeing some red somewhere but not sure.There was an old Vauxhall blue colour that was very similar.

Thank you Colhonk!!! Lovely trailer. Really useful to see pics! Mine won’t have the high sides (yet ;) ). white wheels; I had seen 1 other with white rims; so that has confirmed it for me! Thanks again!
