Hmmm like it alot.
Have you thought about having a mini jockey wheel made to look like the mags?
Now that would be the crowning glory IMO.


Not a bad idea, but would be a lot of work - at the moment I do not use the jockey wheels when showing the car and trailer as there is a table that goes out over the hitch. There is a canopy that fits over the front of the frame with a table and a chair on either side of the table - you then just sit back and watch the 27" TV in comfort - the tool box is used as an esky.

Ciao - James

since u have calipers and i pressum pads on there
it would not take much work to use a caravan style mc on the fron of the trailer hooked up
so when u break the forward inertio activates the caravan mc and the brakes on the trailer

as a added bonus ther is less work needed for the utes brakes!


i think you may be talking about a hydralik brake system.
most of these are drum brakes but i have seen a few with discs.
its a good idea for big trailer but with one your size is pointless.
just put a coating on the discs.

True, the trailer is very light and rated to 750kg and with all my gear inside it is no where near the limit. The Brembo brakes on the Super Pursuit pull the whole load up with no problems.

No there not Brembo Brakes - I painted them the same colour and put on some Brembo Stickers - the rotors are also quite large as I wanted to fill in the space. Unless you are up there with your brakes one would not know - everyone who looked at the setup yesterday at the Stroud Ute Muster thought they were the genuine article - still quite expensive excercise to do the job.
