powerrabbit Posted March 21, 2007 Report Share Posted March 21, 2007 How many of these trailers do you see? This trailer is supposed to be one of the rarest trailers that Britain's produced. This is the 1st series trailer with the lying cow positioned in the centre made in 1968. There was a second series one made I beleive in 1970 and this one had the cow offset to one side. I have in the past seen examples offered on Ebay both boxed and un-boxed and they seem to make megga money, several hundred quid for a boxed one. I suppose that not many examples survive because of their delicate and easily breakable structure, I have seen parts of them, mostly the staves above the sideboards, at toy fairs but never the whole thing. I found this one last year at the Westpoint fair, unfortunately un-boxed but at ?72 (after a long haggle) secured it for my collection. I do like the old Britain's stuff, much more character and I think, true to life. Do you have one of these in your collection? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
