  7. Hi guys, and any ladies who are on here? I am looking for a murex trailer to add to my unit, anything considered; if anyone has or hears of one I would be interested. At present I have a 5kva cov climax gen trailer, and I would be up for part ex or swap, even sale, after i fill the murex requirement. Restored and running, it is post war but with wartime stenciling and is still a nice item. I've missed out on three so far, so still looking. please help..... Regards, Neil PS: Nice work John, but you are making it hard for me to keep up!

  15. hi brian i have had an airborne trailer for 16 years it is 99.5% original ( two little drain holes added in bottom and two new coats of paint ) it had the load straps inside but we took them out and stored them to prevent damage. but as for the LITTLE brackets in side we have looked in books, read the manuals, tried every sort of pump, jack, puncture repair kit , bulb box and battery of the time and non make a good logical fit. The last port of call was a veterans reunion of RASC guys ( who used the trailers in pairs as jeep trains ) and non of them could remember any thing going in them , one chap even asked if i found out what goes in them would i let him know! as for answers online just look to see where the answer has come from or is it just someones idea (there are a lot of weard ones out there ) ie planks to sit on which put all the weight on one side and is the most inefficient way if moveing men who could just sit on top of the load. regards neil
  16.
