    Is the trailer braked? if not, then this will be your first concern, especially if you are is a slightly hilly area.

    From experience there is no way you can 'hold' a trailer full of water if you have to unhitch it for any reason.

    Security is also another major concern.

    My advice would be to put the money the trailer costs toward a van and a van mounted system.

    How much is the trailer BTW? There was a figure of £5400 bantered around recently if I haven't got my wires crossed.

    not sure about the braking situation, I was initially after a van, plus mounted system but theres 5 of us and a crew cab Vauxhall vivaro leaves no room for the system

    Spruce has a point about the brakes. The trailer alone costs £850 http://www.all-fit.co.uk/eshop/1150s-brenderup-trailer-5-x-3-600kg-inc-abs--jockey-wheel-5-x-3_4. God knows how much Purefreedom would charge with a system installed?

    There's a few on fleabay http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_f...Xbrenderup+.TRS0&_nkw=brenderup+1150&_sacat=0

    Expensive! It looks like they are charging 2k for a system that could be set up for a lot less.
