|Motoring in Thailand and Asia Cars and motorbikes in Thailand and Asia, Where to buy and sell your truck? Where to get fixed and what garage to use. Should I buy a suzuki carry? Will it have a car DVD? Will my travel insurance cover me for driving in Thailand? Or should I just buy a Mercedes or a Honda CRV? Everything to do with motoring and vehicles goes in this section. Do I really need a driving licence in Thailand to drive to Bangkok car hire?|

My trailer can hold 3 x 1,000cc Sport-Touring bikes and cost me 30k three years ago. 800Kg nett weight so no need for a braking system, which would of course be a bit more. It seemed a bit steep at the time, but his after-sales service is second-to-none, and only one spot of bother with it, which was my own fault anyway.
Travelling back with it fully loaded from Cm one night, rushing, roadworks and a huge gulley running right across the road I didn't see in the headlights until the last moment. Too late. Suspension on the pickup bottomed out, trailer was fully loaded and bounced higher than the top of the pickup bed, saw the wheels in my cab mirror! Held up though, got me home and a few more trips up & back, with just 1/2" suspension drop on the wheel that hit the deck first, taking all the weight from what must have been a 3' fall. They're solid, I can attest to that. Tows like a dream too, still, even after all the abuse I've given it!
I take it back once a year for a service, won't go into all the freebies he's given me in case others expect the same. Suffice to say he's a damn fair bloke. Keeps right on top of his Thai fabricators, everything produced with typical German attention to detail. For example the bed is lowered between the wheel arches unlike most, so only sits 12" off the ground, making it a doddle to load yourself, I can have all three bikes on & strapped down in under 30min, only need the missus to hold the odd ratchet strap. In hindsight well worth the money. Was going to add a photo but too thick to figure it out.

If you are looking to purchase a trailer I can recommend Respo Trailers. They will be able to make sure that the trailer is registered in your name.
I do not recommend that you try to build your own trailer and try to register it or try to import a trailer yourself as you will get tied up in paperwork and red tape.

I am after a trailer so going to bump this thread and see if there is any new input.
I am after a twin axle 2-ton (or thereabouts) box trailer to be used for a number of tasks from getting the wife's shopping home to allowing her worldly possession to tour Thailand and still allow room for me to drive the car....oh and I'll probably have to bring the rice home from the farm as well.
Just so you're still interested, something like this Beer Trailer would be good:
The website: http://twinner-trailer.com/main-e.html is still on-line and not too far away so I will try here first. Anyone still around that has bought from here?
I haven't driven a trailer since I drove mini-busses for Uni on rag week-ends, which was so long ago that 5* petrol was available, there was no such thing as unleaded and Audis weren't invented...So no anti-sway or weight distribution bars. Anyone with a bit of knowledge of these?
I'll be pulling with a Mitsubishi Pajero Sport with stock trailer bar and stock suspension.
While we are at it, I wanted a roof rack with one of them pod thingies but wifey tells me that you need to get a special car licence update to use it. I sort of understand what she means because I needed a special paper to have a cover over the pick-up bed before and I know you need more papers for front spot lights etc. Must be a few here who own something similar so experiences would be more than welcome.
Almost every trip I do over 150km (day or night) involves at least one Police stop, although most salute and wave me on. A trailer is not something many people have so I will be stopped at least once whenever I use it. Always a pleasure to be saluted because all is ship-shape...
