One 3.75" (Vickers) Heavy AA gun trailer is available. Built by L&AL of London.
Front and rear axles sprung and both knock out.
Overrun breaks (currently not operable) on front axle
Missing original drawbar, mudguards and corner jacks.
This is a substantial piece of kit and all that is asked for is £250
Location East Riding (near a very famous steam venue)
This notification is on behalf of the owner and I will pm you his number if you are a serious enquiry. Please don't ask me to send a photo or anything too techie as you have as much info as I have-if you want more info then pm me and we can take things from there.

This would make for a fantastic group project-there are guns out there without trailers in Sleaford and Malta.......

well near Sleaford ;-) only what I understood from the vendor, there must be someone out there who wants a big trailer for only £250? The owner has carried a tractor unit on it so could be used as a form of low loader

Would love it, but nothing to drag it down here with (also the small detail of hiding it!).

Besides there's no-one observant enough to notice it, i'm sure we could hide it somewhere like behind the bikeshed.

I realise this post is old now, but was wondering if the trailer is still available.
Cheers,

I assume this trailer is for transporting the static version of the gun unlike the version in the photogragh and is therefore of little use unless you have one.

well the chap that had it only used it to move his traction engine about. He'd met my Dad in hospital when he had terminal cancer so I guess the trailer has now been sold off or scrapped.
