That could turn out to be a MINI and a half if you bought that.

I suppose its a good solution to your noisy timing chain issue anyway.

Anyone who thinks they could turn that into a trailer needs to look at the law on homebuilt trailers. These are now subject to IVA (Individual Vehicle Approval) like kitcars or imports, and there's a long list of things that have to be done.

One obvious thing is that any trailer has to have the large red triangular reflectors to show it's a trailer (like the East Coast Mini example doesn't have!). But there's plenty more that needs to be done before it's taken for inspection.

The Trailer IVA inspection manual is a snip at just 127 pages long.

The East Coast Mini trailer was probably made before the law on homebuilt trailers changed - although the red triangles have been a legal requirement for just the last 20 or 30 years.....
