    I don’t know – looks great, but how much does all that weigh? The tires in the last shot are either severely under-inflated or overloaded.

      It is a heavy girl, however the tyres are indeed deflated in that pic. We raised the height of the box in the workshop and had to let the tyres down to get it outta the door! These trucks are designed to carry 3 small horses and the combined weight of what we put in doesn’t come close to that.

    Thanks guys :)
    Well spotted with the tyres- she is a heavy girl, but we had to let the tyres down to get here out of the workshop! We added some height with the new Luton and the rack, she just got out- 1mm to spare! :)
