Our stock changes constantly, and boats tend to sell quickly, some boats get sold before they are put on our brokerage list. Summer is well and truly here in Cornwall and we are pleased to have provided this bespoke Field kitchen for Local Chef, Simon Stallard. The Kitchen has been fitted out onto a Brian James trailer, providing a central island cooking area where Simon and his staff serve food daily, along with his famous feast nights. Very busy workshops at present with trailers going to Ireland, Wales, the South Coast and Austria plus a 20 foot aluminium Launch trailer for Union Island ….. This new project, completed for our client who required a slipway with full access cradle and remote controlled winch, now graces the water line on this private slipway in Cornwall. Summer’s here and all departments are busy with recent deliveries to Ireland and Scotland, not forgetting London. Witter and Westfalia tow bars are fitted daily along with dedicated wiring and vehicle coding.
Last week The Royal Air Force collected a trailer for their North Wales base, and once again, the purpose of this box van was classified! Winter here in Falmouth and we are already thinking about the warm summer sailing days ahead. This little caravan, known as a Tear Drop Caravan, was made by a customer in Plymouth and we were asked to make the chassis and running gear. Here’s a few more pictures of our bespoke trolleys in use at Manchester Royal Infirmary.
We also saw one box van delivered and numerous boat trailers, including one for a Cornwall Fisheries protection vessel. Been sponsoring the pupils from Richard Lander Green powered racing  again this year with the loan of Transport for their Green Powered car. In this instance he will take the trailer down, row out to the clients boat and bring it back to shore to load on its new trailer. Boat trailers going out of the gates in all shapes and sizes at present – trailers for Crabbers, Shrimpers,  Dinghies and Kayaks as here. You may have heard of the Stig, well we have A Grig, Some say… he sleeps hanging from a meat hook in the steel store and that he has machine oil in his veins. The Grig has incorporated a tilting body with ramp so that  a low slung car can be loaded with no break over angle, inside there’s an electric remote winch, fuel storage rack, twin tyre racks, work bench and, oh yes, 240 volt electrics for the kettle.
Any one wanting to own such a trailer will have to pass a written examination set by the Grig. Summer is here at Tyrone Towers, we are seeing more and more boat trailers in for service, and several very nice bespoke build boat trailers went out to clients for their new boats. Meanwhile we are gearing up for EU type approval, and have appointed the Dutch company Hestacon to draw up the approval specs and required procedures conformity documents! Its a busy time here at Tyrone Towers, 5 new boat trailers delivered today to Cornish Crabbers at Rock for their new Crabber 12 range launched at the London Boatshow in January. Three additional new Anssem enclosed box trailers going out to the RNLI to be used by their marketing people. We are all heads down now working towards type approval which comes in in October this year. Thought I’d post this photo I took at Loe Beach, Feock whilst recovering a broken trailer.


Back from powder coating and installed, these railings were made for a new Park Homes site in Truro where we are hoping to secure more work in the new year. The sun is streaming through the window intermittently this morning and it’s hard to believe that this time last year we had snow on the ground – this year we have horizontal rain and strong winds!! Paul has been busy working on a BT lorry.  These polecat lorries are helping roll out BT high speed broadband across West Cornwall (I wish they’d head our way)!!  The project will take the next few years then the lorries will probably be pensioned off. Another week gone and we are heading towards December full tilt!!  It’s been a very busy week and there has been lots of work through the door which is very encouraging.  The news hasn’t got any better, but I think people are just putting their heads down and getting on with it – several sales this week have been to people setting up new businesses – how encouraging – we wish them well! Check out this motorcycle trailer that went out this week.  Made by Greg, this little beauty is ideal for towing behind a motor-home and was powder coated to match the tow vehicle. We have been busy in the office this week too quoting for various different trailer builds.  Although the old adage goes some you win some you lose some – in this instance we are hoping to win some plus a few!! With the change to GMT it really does feel like winter is on the way.  We have just taken our last delivery of Anssems trailers before the winter and the yard is now brimming with a good selection of trailers. Workshop fabrication is constant at the moment with orders for bespoke boat trailers continuing to come in.
As an apprentice a few years ago, a time when all telephones were black and no one had ever heard of mobile phones, Tim worked as a blacksmith and has clearly not forgotten his craft. Winterising your boat trailer is easy and can help prevent problems in Spring when you want to put your boat back in the water.  Here are a few simple tips. Gig trailer delivered and pictured with happy members of the local gig club.  Sundowner duly had – what a stunning scene! This week has been very busy.  Every day has seen call outs to rescue trailers with owners in distress or trailers leaving the yard repaired and ready for action once again.
The new Cape Cornwall Pilot Gig Club trailer is off to the gig shed at Sennen tonight – a good excuse for a sundowner overlooking the surf at Sennen after it is safely delivered. Seems like autumn is truly upon us.  Lots of movement on the boat trailer front as people are preparing to get their boats out of the water at the end of the month.  Not like last year with an extended season, although who knows what October will be like?!
Gig trailer to be rolled out for delivery to Cape Cornwall Pilot Gig Club this coming week and new heavy duty Rollercoaster for customer at Rock.
Busy time in the service department so far this month, boats coming off the water now all needing trailers.  Several call outs to the roadside to recover trailers with collapsed axles or units – the result of irregular or nonexistent servicing! With new vehicle registration out now we are booking ten days ahead for towbar fitting.  Paul very happy with his new Westfalia diagnostic coding gizmo for the electrics. Looking forward to the Southampton Boat Show next week and seeing our trailers on Cornish Crabbers stand.  Check them out on stand FO15 and the new Mystery on marina berth M264. Tow bar workshop taking delivery of new coding computer soon – all high tech stuff here!! Tim working on a new Powercat trailer.  Delivery to Worcester for a boat fitting early September, before finally heading to the Isle of Skye to live. He has been involved several TV projects, and is seen here filming with Michelin star Chef, Tom Kerridge.
If you can get chance to book, then you will enjoy open air dining, fresh food cooked beautifully and a great view! The rails are all fabricated in Marine grade stainless steel, with the galvanised cradle having a gantry walkway and ladder access. We’re excited to have a lorry booked to deliver 30 of the latest Anssems trailers from Germany.


Obviously we can’t go into too much detail, but seen here in the picture, is a special version of a box van trailer, being delivered to a secret Naval base in Helston. We do know however that they will be able to put a good number of kayaks and mountain bikes inside. Again this is highly secret that they will carry a classified cargos of kayaks and mountain bikes. Padstow Gig Club have a new trailer about to come out of the workshops and more enquiries for trolleys have been received from Master Mover. If you are making one of these fantastic little caravans, then it might be worthwhile giving us a call for the chassis. We have just about recovered from the New Year’s celebrations and are looking forward to an exciting 2013. We’ve had orders from Scotland for boat trailers, Manchester Royal Infirmary for trolleys, Nottingham for Kayak trailers and Cornwall for boat trailers. Pictured here with the first trailer that he assembled, a yard trailer for a Cornish Shrimper, we all wish him well. This picture was taken last week by Colin who was out making arrangements for another new boat trailer delivery to the small, idyllic village of Port Navis located on the Helford River.
All in a days service … speaking of which, now is a the time to get your boat trailer serviced!
Tow bars are being fitted at a minimum of one a day, along with requests for one off camper van installations.
All quite trying really, especially when money should be put towards more actual investment in the production side. The gentleman now leaves his sons to run the family firm – Bailey Caravans – so it was a pleasure to make something that he actually wanted with extra wide wheels and beefed up suspension. All that’s left to say is thank you to all those customers who have supported us during 2011 – have a great Christmas and a prosperous 2012! Her proud new owners are taking her back to the Cotswolds for some winter tlc.  Colin and Greg can be seen here directing operations!!
Capable of standing on its end for easy storage it is probably the shortest trailer we have ever made!!
We cannot say what is inside, but when unleashed, the mountain bikes that are deployed present a formidable force.
All very hush hush. And so, if you are reading this and want a secure defence contractor, you are in safe hands with us. The office is busy preparing documentation for EU type approval so that our trailers can continue to be sold overseas! A certificate, some long numbers on the serial plate, and, oh yes, slightly different shaped mudflaps! Over the years we have sent them to Africa, Spain, France, Turkey, Switzerland, America, and Nuneaton! When finished the trailer will be stunning – it will be fully enclosed with a pull out awning, posh lighting and all the bits that make a racing car trailer special.
