Many problems confront the enthusiast who needs trailer transport. Consequently, the ability to hire a trailer would seem to ease the situation considerably. Piggy-Back Trailer Rentals Ltd. offer five different trailer models for hire, at charges which start at £2 per day, with reductions for longer periods. Their trailers hitch in ingenious fashion to the rear hubs of any car with other than wire wheels, so that attachment, with lighting, can be accomplished in about 15 minutes, and the possibility of damage to the client’s car is virtually nil.
The Apartment Van is a covered four-wheel trailer providing a stowage space of 8 ft. x 4 ft. x 5 ft. (high) and a capacity of 15 cwt.; unladen its aluminium panelling gives a weight of only 8 1/2 cwt. There are lateral rails for tie-lines, the door can be padlocked, and the low floor makes loading easier than into a van. The Low-Loader four-wheel trailer has an open-deck space of 8 ft. x 4 ft. x 3 in. and 18-in, high-sides and will carry loads of up to 17 cwt., for an unladen weight of 6 1/2 cwt.
