Carry Freedom Trailers rattling when unladen.
« on: May 13, 2020, 04:40:58 am »
I notice there's been a upgrade of the classic Y design to stop it being so noisey when unladen. They've basically just added a clamp to the recieving end of the frame.


Has anyone found a way to stop the older frames from rattling?

Nope, but I like the rattle,

Reassures me I've not lost it, which happened once with the old style hitch.

Load the trailer  and the rattle is much reduced  ;D

It's okay I didn't bring a coat   ;)

This was what prompted me to get one of the 'red lollipop' hitches after nearly ten years of owning a small Y-frame. (For those that need to know, the detached trailer ran straight and true for about 5 m as indicated by the groove the hitch arm ploughed in the kerb side leaf litter.)

Which hitch did you have? The folded metal one?

Yes. (The one, when looked at from one direction, is a 'j' shape.) It was the one that came with the trailer when I bought it about 11 yrs ago.

Ah that's the only hitch I've not had.

So there was a type after the 'j' type and before the red lollipop?
