    I am trying to purchase the y-frame small in the united states but it seems virtually impossible. Are there any shops in the U.S. that carry this product? If not, why? Seems like an awfully large market to miss out on…

    Dear Bob
    I would like to use the Y-Small in an upright way , viz. not in the way you proposed to Jean-Claude on Dec.2/2014, but more like your “Leaf”-model. Is there a possibility for it?
    Kind regards

      Hi Marcel, not really that easy. the y if slanted does#t really work well. it’s better when the load bed is flat. some people do walk the y using a harness set up. is that what you are thinking about? Thanks – Bob

    Edit for 2nd line of last comment:

    ‘perhaps more people currently buy the large Y because it is currently the only way to carry their occasional more bulky loads on a Y trailer? :)’


    ‘of the people who currently buy the large-Y, perhaps a sizable subset, who would prefer a small-Y most of the time, currently buy the large Y because it is currently the only way to carry their occasional more bulky loads on a Y trailer? :) A bolt-on L axle might suit them. :)’

    Thanks for your replies:

    perhaps more people currently buy the large Y because it is currently the only way to carry their occasional more bulky loads on a Y trailer? :)

    Would a bolt-on wider (Y-large width) axle increase the small’s max weight closer to the 90kg max of the large due to increased wheel spacing?
    However, personally I would not be keen to greatly exceed 50kg on an unbraked trailer any way, because the CTC Technical Officer advised that more than 50kg should really be on a braked trailer.

      It’s a question of being sensible. Some people don’t have (or want) cars these days and occasionally need to carry more than normal. with care you can do this with a Y-large. Business use with regular loads over 50 kg need the trailer to have a brake system. BUT you are responsible for what you do with it, so use your noggin….!

    The Carry Freedom Y trailers are mentioned favourably on forums/reviews but they do require a choice between large (most versatile) and small (conveniently fits through doors/smaller gaps etc):

    I suspect most people would be suited to a small most of the time, so a bolt on axle to occasionally expand it to large width would seem a useful thing to have bundled with the small trailer, allowing it to be used as a large when necessary):

    Carry Freedom already make a bolt on Super-wide axle…..

    so a a wide(Y-large equivalent widh) one isn’t much of a step.
    The accompanying small trailer could then come with the appropriate matching drill-ings.

    The wide axle beam could be perhaps be offered bundled with the small Y as well as sold as an add-on.

    The large Y could remain for those who always need a large trailer or want 20in wheels.

      Interesting thought. but actually the opposite is the case. we sell a lot more large trailers, because many people like the extended weight capacity. the idea of the wide axle beam is to increase the width further for carrying kayaks and boats. the wide axle beam does work with the y-small as well, so you could use the y-small most of the time and just add the beam for really special use. BUT then the width is 85cm. Thanks for your input. Bob
