Ifor Williams 505R Horse Trailer. I have owned this trailer for 10 years - I am now selling it as I need something bigger for my current horse, who is 18.1hh! Please note - it is a used, not a new trailer, however, having said that, it is very solid and in good condition for its age, in comparison to many trailers of the same age.
I bought this trailer as a newly refurbished (by a professional) trailer 10 years ago - at that point, it had been fitted with a brand new aluminum floor, new rubber matting, new panels throughout, new brakes, new electrics. Although it now has some further age to it, due to general wear and tear (see below for points to note) it has been well looked after during the time that it has been owned by me.
All of the electrics (even the inside light) are in good working order the panels were replaced throughout 3 years ago and the trailer was repainted with a plastic coated paint - unfortunately, this has started to peel off in places (as can be seen from the photos) as the trailer is stood outside all year round, so although the wood underneath is solid with protective coating, for cosmetic purposes it could do with re-painting. The floor is solid and the trailer has been washed out and the matting lifted and checked regularly. The trailer was last serviced in October 2017 by a friend who carries out trailer repair and servicing. It has been in regular use at least a couple of times a month and travelled from Harrogate to Somerford Park last summer with no issues - tows well and hardly felt there was a trailer on the back of my car!
Points to note/that need attention:
•could do with a respray for cosmetic purposes only;
•the spare wheel needs fitting back onto the outside of the trailer - the wheel itself is fine, but the tyre has perished and needs replacing, but we have just never gotten around to it;
•Needs a brake-away cable fitting - I drove off a few weeks ago, with the cable still attached! I have a new cable, but have not gotten around to fitting it. The cable can be included in the sale;
•The inside panels/partition - the rubber flaps have torn off over time and the padding inside the divers/frames has come out - this can all be seen in the pictures. this does not affect use and is just cosmetic;
•The section that the number plate sits on needs a new screw putting through it as it is a little bit loose;
•The ramp is solid, but the left hand bottom corner the metal has started to lift as a screw has come out - it just wants a new screw drilling in.
Happy to answer any questions, but do bear in mind, you are purchasing a second hand trailer and for the price I am asking, it is in my opinion, a bargain! Sold as seen.
Buyer to collect - cash on collection or will accept Paypal, but please be aware that the transfer must have taken place before you will be allowed to drive away with the trailer!
