    Evenin' All,
    Just wanted to share my new setup.
    Build up Story.....

    I started WFP with a Surflo Backpack and 25ltr barrels. I then built a trailer with a shelf for the Backpack and 6 barrels with a caravan pump to fill.
    As the principle of this worked I got a Brenderup 1150 trailer with a 250ltr tank and bilge pump.......OK till I employ and the backpacks keep failing.
    I then put 100psi pumps on with controlers and 2 hosereels............fine but in the open it gets water in the controllers and with 2 of us we're topping up twice a day.
    So...........I looks on E-Bay for a box trailer.............A Ha! there's an old "Reach and Wash" Ifor Williams system up for peanuts......Place a bid :)
    BINGO....gets it for peanuts :)
    Get it home...looks at all the **** poles and the old 40" Filter system.....scratching our heads ???
    "What you wanna do with it?" my mate asks.
    "Rip it out!"
    So we're left with a Trailer and 1000ltr Tank. We fit 2 pumps and controllers, 2 hose reels and away it goes.....perfik ;-)
    Only half fill the tank and out we go on Mon morning with my Skoda Octavia 1.6....it's towing weight is 1200kg....I weigh the trailer.......1450kg...........
    DOH..........
    Cutting a long story short I get a Land Rover Discovery 2 TD5................ 2013-03-11 12.26.10.jpg 2013-03-11 12.26.23.jpg 2013-03-11 12.26.48.jpg 2013-03-11 12.27.18.jpg

    I like. Dunno about reversing all that though, time consuming?

    Nice set up but looks a lot of aggro with trailer.
