Ixo has now introduced a two-axle trailer. Not as good as the MC but nice enough for the van/car sets. Unfortunately it's a bit spendy at 30 euros.

Ixo Twin wheel car trailer

Its good to see that Ixo have now released the car trailer that was previously only available with PW sets. Its pretty basic but it looks the part behind a service van with a car loaded on it . As Tom pointed out, its nowhere near as detailed as the Minichamps trailer , but its more period correct for 70s & 80s rally cars and its considerably cheaper than the MC trailer.

Looking forward to adding a few of these. I'm wondering where the best place is to get them ?

The web shop that gives you the highest discount, I imagine... price is around 30 euros which I think is a little on the high side given the simplicity of the model.

I agree Tom. Thats lumpy for what is a nice but basic trailer. I guess what they lose on the service vans they make up elsewhere!

John at SPR has said he's going to try and get me a few of these. Will be interesting to compare his price to those from Europe.

Trailer looks fantastic if a little 'nude'. I hope this follows the original.

It would look better with some livery on it , but it is completely accurate ;)

Very nice. Have you had to build an extension to house these service vehicles?

I'd be happy to have the 1:1 trailer - could then lock myself away with a few 1:43s :lol:

Interesting to see in that picture that the van has no livery either. Maybe it was pre-season testing ? Whatever the reason, maybe the trailer got a livery when the van received its livery?

Edit.....another picture. Liveried van but still no livery on the trailer, so if nothing else its consistent with this picture.

Not quite yet Paul, but if Ixo keeps churning them out like they have been, then who knows :D

The trailer is nicely done, despite being all plastic . Im wondering if Ixo might turn these out as an individual trailer as im sure theyd sell well . Im sure you dont need a trailer to hide away in Martin :D

Without a doubt , the trailer is accurate . Seen here again behind a larger Citroen Sport truck.

I'm keeping it to one single car and trailer. These are really tempting but a complete set is far from cheap... like it a lot though.
