Extending a trailer


Recommended Posts

I've been offered a 12'x 6' Ifor Williams flatbed trailer at sensible money.

Alas I need a bed width of ~7' for MogLite.

Do you think it would be feasible to bolt on 6-9" extension to each side to add some width. With a bit of triangulation down to the main chassis rails ?

Moglite is on 12" tyres, and the rear track is 6'6" but the front track is closer to 7", so a fair percentage would be on the original bed.

just keep it within these limits if using a Towing vehicle up to 3500kg GVW

Maximum Trailer Dimensions

Length (excluding the coupling and drawbar) 7.0 m

Width Maximum 2.3 m

going above these will mean towing with a vehicle over 3500kg GVW [i.e. & 7.5 tonne truck]
