Actually, it's not a Pop, it's an Anglia -& so is Shaun's.
Thanks to Tazet, Ska Man & Loony for spending the day on the road with me today. We trundled down to Rochester in Kent & collected my new toy. Tazzie managed to borrow the biggest trailer in the World from her boss, along with a mate's V8 Discovery to tow it with. Neil, the Ebay selling chappie was very helpful & genuinely pleased it was going to someone who'll, (hopefully), actually do something with it.
Didn't take long to load it on the trailer -might've been even quicker if I'd helped! Well, someone had to record the event for prosperity  Cheesy
It's now temporarily living in the trailer at Tazet's place until garage space becomes available & I've decided what to do with it.
Where the hell do I start?

They're just making it look hard work. Looked easy to me from my vantage point on the other side of the road. It was rolling slightly downhill & literally took 2 minutes to run it straight up into the trailer. There was a winch but it wasn't needed. A Pop in a box.

Most horse box builders sell them. I will look around and let you know as I need one for the lorry awning as one has broken.

We go all over and not so much the county chows as thats the poncy stuff but we do the equivalent to ridden 3 day eventing but in a carriage. I will do a write up one day to explain what I do (will bore most people though).
Last year I drove out to Portugal but mainly we stay in England. This year the first show is Brighton and at some point in Aug we go to Cumbria then straight on to Scotland so will be gone for about 2 weeks.

The trailer in the pic takes all the carriages and feed and equipment needed.
