At the weekend, I finally got to pick up the trailer that I wanted all last season. Its a Indespension twin axle 1500kg gross beavertail, low loader type trailer with high ramp tail gate and two speed winch.
It is a very nice trailer and I want to keep hold of it!!
I am manufacturing my own sideboards to my own specification as there were none included in the sale.
It is secured in the same manner as my old one, that is, bolted to a ground anchor with a very high tensile chain and hitchlocked.
I spoke to the insurance company today at http://www.ntta.co.uk/trailer_insurance/insurance.aspx - they have offered me a very reasonable premium, but say that they require it to be wheel clamped.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a GOOD wheel clamp to suit the 10 inch wheels that are fitted as all the ones that I have seen locally seen to be for 13" wheels and over?
As usual, thanks in advance!
I got a clamp from SAS
they do a range to suit different wheels

Check out these. £100-£150 but I think welll worth it!
Remember to clamp a rear wheel, not front one ;)
I have found the SAS clamps fine as a visible and physical deterrent. The Bulldog clamps I found to be a bt of a hassle to store and quite cumbersome to fit.... might just have been me though!
You're right Alasdair, the Centaur clamps are bigger and heavier - just what I want in a clamp.
The sas one I had could have been removed by me relatively easily (without the key!)
I would only use a cheap clamp on a very tatty or a small lightweight trailer that wasn't worth more than £500. Since large trailers like this are worth £3k upwards I think a small amount of hassle is worth it to keep it safe.
