Been doing some work on the bowser this weekend,removed the wood floor n all the farm welded additions,power washed off n sprayed with oil,chassis wants some of the corroded bits sorting 2of the tyres split.found some numbers above makers plate 26745..could this be the year of manufacture?? also the part remains of some white lettering on chassis just before makers plate starts with a G"orC" &ends with an E"?? still looking for a swivel towing eye for it.Noticed the chassis bends in narrower at turntable end(see pics)unlike my EEC which is straight,any feedback welcome...009.jpg

Love the thread, please keep posting.


Turntable trailers are so sensible looking, do they tow well in addition?




Must admit they do have a certain attraction,this one bounces abit as 1 tyre has flat spot,1 tyre holds air,1 is a spare (swapped it to go on my EEC as taking it to local show..)&the other tyre has big split in it..hard rubber,:D
