I couldn't find any mk3 sankey trailers. I did find other sankey trailers.

You will struggle a bit there, virtually all stocks of wide track 3/4 ton trailers have been sold, with no more being released from the MOD. If you've got a big pot of gold Withams have got some brand new condition Penman trailers, they are the current British Army Land Rover trailers and very tasty indeed.

These guys list the Wide Track FV2381 trailers, they are in the US too. http://www.khakicorpsimports.com

It's good to see an other Tithonus owner on the board. It doesn't look like they have a mk3 either. This sankey that I am looking for has hydraulic disc breaks and square tail lights. And the hitch mechanism is through the tongue of the trailer and not on top.
Thanks

Anyone seen the replacement for the Sankey made by Penman?

Yup, before I moved to the US, the British army have been using then for a good while now. Very nice trailers, and higher rated load capacity than the 'Sankey' pattern ones.

I know the one you are after, the disk braked version of the 'Sankey' wide track is sometimes referred to as a 'wolf' trailer in the UK as that is what they were often towed by. I had one in the UK until I left, sold it to a buddy before I left though. E bay UK might be your best chance of finding one, if you know anyone over there that could arrange shipping.

Is this the wide track style you are looking for?

I don't know if he still has any but I got one from Michele Knautz in Canada about a year ago. Email me off list I may still have his contact info.

The one I got is in the picture with the rear fog lights. If I remember correctly they were $600 a piece and you needed to purchase 2 at a time and come and get them in Canada. (no shipping) A bit of a PITA I realize but I had a friend willing to drive up and the strapped two together and they towed them back over the boarder. I went to NE and towed it back to TN. Hahahaha what a trip that was. Every time I stopped 5lbs of paint seemed to flake off They were typical military condition, ie had the crap beat out of them.

I ended up taking it apart and sand basted the whole thing. Actually pretty nice once apart. I'm on the final stages of building a camper trailer. The picture was the test fitting of the tent and fox wing.

Looks like Withams have gotten a batch of brand new ex reserve stock trailer tubs in. I don't know if that will help but will mean you only have to source the frame now. They come with the duckboards and a canvas, all new. You might have to have a quick word with Santa!
