Humbaur. Box trailer.’HK254017-18′.
Exceptional, very smart trailer in superb condition.
Hot dipped galvanised chassis.
Side panels are constructed from a lightweight, insulated, composite sandwich, 45mm thick. This helps keep the trailer weight low.
Floor is 18mm Marine Ply with Phenolic resin coating, to help prevent slipping.
Tyres are in excellent condition. Size 195/65 R15
The trailer was originally purchased by a UK Police Force and used as a mobile incident room. There are still signs of the conversion; these are two wooden uprights either side of the door, a small piece of wood screwed to the floor at the front of the trailer, some plastic conduit inside, (all these could be easily removed) and two very small holes drilled into the floor. None of this is detrimental to the trailer at all. When we purchased the trailer from a dealer, we were told the trailer, if purchased new, in this specification, would be around £12,000.00.
There are a few marks inside and outside the trailer commensurate with normal use. Nothing detrimental. No damage. The worst is really at the top outside where the original owner had stickers. As can be seen on photographs.
There is no key for the lock. The barrel could easily be replaced. There is the facility to fit a padlock within the same fitting, which is what we have always done, to lock the ramp. The main lock handle is slightly bent, again no issue. Repair to off-side front indicator.
There are twin height cargo rails running the length of the interior. There are spring loaded bars supplied which will fit between the cargo rails, across the width of the interior, to aid with load stability.
Perfectly weighted drop down rear door/ramp. The ramp has high quality grip tape in rows to prevent slipping.
Supplied with two plastic wheel chocks that can clip to the outside of the trailer at the back on each side.
Supplied with two independent wheel locks. These are one Full Stop Samurai FSWC10CB (Sold Secure), one Maypole MP9075. Also one Strongbox hitchlock SH5411 (Diamond 5 security). I bought these for the trailer, total cost was around £200.00
Full service in May 2017 along with a small repair to the off-side front indicator, as shown in pictures.
We have owned this trailer for about two years and have simply outgrown it. Sad to see it go really!!!
Whilst we have owned it, it has been securely stored at Donington Park Racing Circuit, and moved just 600 meteres or so, two or three times a week, during the motorcycle racing season. The trailer held some of our ReLoved stock. Other movement has been three journeys of approximately 40 miles to and from base, one to the dealer for service and one trip to Bruntingthorpe Airfield and back to Donington Park. That is all!.
An automatic 2.2 diesel Mercedes Vito has been used to move the trailer. The trailer is an absolute pleasure to tow, ultra stable and incredible quality build.
When we originally purchased this Humbaur we searched all over the country. We wanted something smarter, better made, lighter and more secure than the run of the mill Ifor Williams or the like. We found it in this trailer. Really smart, not agricultural. The new owner will not be disappointed.
We, probably like you, are very busy. We would not waste your time, or my time, with an inaccurate description.
Overall length-5 meters 60 centimeters.
Interior length-4 meters 2 centimeters.

Any relevant questions will be answered quickly and honestly. Viewing very welcome. We are between Tamworth and Atherstone, Warwickshire. Five minutes from Junction 10 on M42.
Please do not ask if your vehicle will legally tow this trailer. We would not know! We took professional advice prior to purchasing the trailer. There are photographs of the chassis plate and tow hitch showing all relevant weights etc. Buyer must satisfy themselves of suitability for their use.
You will need a relevant vehicle, with a tow-bar, to tow away the trailer…..or a trailer!!!
