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?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1311.R5.TR7.TRC2.A0.H0.Xbrenderup+.TRS0&_nkw=brenderup+1150&_sacat=0

I notice the heading called Options under the description.

 

Options are usually addition items which cost money. 250l is too small for a days work IMHO.

 

This was on Ebay the other day.

I think he was offered less when he relisted the item.

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

Could probably build a whole system for a few hundred quid.

What do you know about WFP? What is your tap TDS? How will 2 do WFP and 3 trad? Will you all be working on houses next to each other? What will customers say when one house is left dry and the neighbours house is left wet?

 

Personally, I'd buy a second van for the WFPers and send them off on their own.

All WFP is, is a water tank of some description, a water pump, a battery for the pump and a speed controller for the pump.

 

Look on here for DIY van mount, a trailer is exactly the same, just..... on a trailer.

Don't know nowt about wfp, but having said that I didn't know nowt about trad until I got stuck in. I'm the only driver at work but wanted to keep costs down anyway, as for the two squads working next to each other, we'd be on different estates. My Tds reading is 72 ppm
