You can purchase a universal Hitch Lock from Halfords or other good stockist, it is a small brass barrel supplied with 2 keys that inserts into the handle (look for a small key hole sized & shaped hole in the trailer hitch handle) the lock once installed can be used for both locking the Trailer on the vehicle or off to stop the handle from being depressed, & thus stop the trailer from being removed or hitched up.

Not too expensive at all & worth the money.

The rear panel does not fold down, however it is detachable, allowing for easier loading.
In regards to the raised mesh sides, these will be suitable.

Question
Can i buy mesh sides and cover to fit the Erde 142
We purchased the Erde 142 about 3 years ago and it has served us well over the years but I would now like to add mesh sides and cover but I am confused because I only see mesh sides for the newer version trailers which are different sizes?

There is a 30cm high cover kit available but that does not have mesh sides, it has a pole system to create the extra hight & a deeper cover to cover the poles & clip on to the existing trailer cover clips aroungd the original trailer panels.

I have this 30cm taller cover & simply purchased a sheet of plywood to make taller sides, front & rear that slip inside the trailer box to stop my camping equipment resting on the taller cover & tearing it losing the items out.

The goods in the trailer hold the plywood against the sides of the trailer without any fixings & the poles too also help hold the plywood in place, works well for my needs camping.

Unfortunately we do not stock any raised sides for this trailer. We do however stock a Erde 142 30cm Trailer Cover (Cat code: 572123) which provides 75% extra capacity.

The honest answer is this, a Trailer that is shorter in length including the draw bar will always will be more difficult to reverse with.

It can be mastered as everything can, the key is when reversing with a short Trailer is not to let the Trailer go too far out of line if of coarse you are reversing in a straight line.

If you relax & keep the steering to small gentle movement when correcting this will help inormously.

If you are making really big steering wheel corrections due to the Trailer snaking from side to side then you reversing technique is not a good one.

A good tip is normally to steer in the opposite direction that you wish the Trailer to head but this can just complicate your thinking if you dwell on it too much.

Nice & steady is the key, if you find you have gone back a little too far & the Trailer is too far off straight too continue your reverse then simply pull forward again to straighten up & start you reverse again.

It really is practice makes perfect with reversing a Trailer, a large LGV Trailer is far easier to reverse in a straight line that a 5 foot Trailer.

just remember this, there is no rush, just take your time.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide such information regarding the difficulty of driving a vehicle with a trailer in use. If you are unsure on how to operate the trailer, please speak to your local store who may be able to assist you further.
