Articulated and drawbar trailers

This set of drawings and instructions cover three different designs of trailer and a ‘dolly’ which are suitable for a variety of fairground rides.

A single axle 31’ (9.4m) long trailer with low drop centre bed and twin 42mm diameter (i.e. lorry size) wheels. The trailer is carried on very detailed leaf springs but instructions are also given for a simple suspension system. Included is a drawing of a set of landing legs and jacks which allow the trailer to be lifted clear of the ground and levelled for use. These can be adapted for the other trailers. Will suit a Big Wheel, Coaster, Satellite, Rock-o-Plane or Looper.

A twin axle 42’ (12.7m) long trailer with a drop centre bed, a choice of simple leaf spring or air bag suspension and twin 31 or 42mm diameter wheels. The sides of the trailer bed are made from channel section metal for ease of fitting gates, sleepers or fold out platforms. Will suit a Dive Bomber, Twist, Jump and Smile or Waltzer.

A twin axle 50’ (15.2m) long trailer with straight through framework bed, simple leaf spring suspension, removable bogie and choice of twin 29 or 42mm diameter wheels. The sides of the trailer bed are again made from channel. Ideal for a lifting Paratrooper or Meteorite but will also suit an Arcade, Dodgems, Orbiter, Matterhorn or Miami.

A drawbar dolly carried on detailed leaf springs but instructions are also given for a simple suspension system. Twin 29, 31 or 42mm diameter wheels may be fitted giving turntable heights from 37mm up to the standard artic fifth wheel height.
