id recommend the brian james clubman, fits a corsa (maybe squeeze a mk4 astra) lightweight and quality... hold their value too.
iv had quite a few trailers and the main solid advice id give is never buy an ex caravan chassis that someones made. had a timber plank flip up and cave the roof in on my most favourate car iv ever owned....
after that and a lot of effort rebuilding i splashed the cash and bought an ifor (ct136hd i think)
that was great and fitted vectra c's and such on but was probs a bit big for the intended purpose

Steal at a grand though, it'll do all the work you have for it and still be worth that in five years.


Cheers for the info Ian, I've taken a punt on it. My only real concern is the width as I'm running lower offset wheels than most so will only have about 15mm either side of the car. But I can always sell it on if its no good.

Purely just need it for my Corsa and Nova that's all.

Guy at work has a Trac-Sporter, looks the business, hate to think how much they cost though

Hi guys,

I'm looking into getting a trailer to tow my Corsa to track days.

I'd like the smallest / lightest I can get away with. I think a single axle will be ok as the car only weighs 900kgs.

The tow vehicle is an E91 BMW estate.

Any recommendations?

The BRIAN JAMES Micro Max jumps out at me but it may be pushing it on the small size.

Cheers for any suggestions, there's so many different types to choice from!

Neil
