Land Rover roofed sankey

Post by Cornish Rattler » Tue Jan 30, 2018 10:40 am

Hi guys

I've just joined the forum and this is my first post, anyway i own a 1970 S2a ( civvy ) which i am in the middle of restoring and once its finished i plan to buy a Sankey trailer probably a wide track the later the better hopefully, anyway the plan with the Sankey is once i know its mechinicaly sound i plan to paint it to match the landy and fit a series SWB roof with a full roof rack and fit matching wheels as to whats on the landy.

What do you think :D

Welcome to the forum, Graham. There is an excellent thread from Bob Fell on here on doing up a Sankey - you should find plenty there to interest you. You'd have to check the width of a wide-track. I am not sure a Land Rover Series hard top would fit. I think it is OK for the narrow-track but not the WT. But, I could be wrong.

Fred
Best,

Hi Graham and welcome to the forum.
You can build a nice purpose built trailer based on a Sankey.
Here is a picture of my friends narrow track special,built to tow behind his Tomb Raider and the 101.

Yeah for the past 10 yrs i've been using my trusty old trailer tent as its coil sprung and braked 5 yrs as a trailer tent and another 5-6 yrs as a utility trailer but its getting tired now and its only a 550kg trailer and i need something that will carry a bit more weight and make a series roof fit as i've seen a few with them fitted and should look good on a sankey :D
