    Ooo, a grease cap for an old Rice......I could do with one of those.

    Hinges for the breast bars are on my list too, I've just never got around to it! Did fork out nearly 140 on hitch dampers and a gaiter though, so the other stuff was left out.
    Why go around, when you can go through? ~Old cob saying

    Beau 17-5-1993 - 11-6-2018 My best mate. I owed you so much and I am so sorry we couldn't save you. Goodnight old friend.

    Really? It's done nothing but fall apart since I bought it new. The only things I like about it are that it gives a much better ride than the IW and the front ramp is on the left, which is much more sensible than having it on the roadside.

    Hi!
    I'm about to emport a Rice trailer to Norway!
    Love the design, I already have a '63 Pony trailer (Straight frontwall).
    The "new" one is a Rice Beaufort Double, but I cant find out which year this is made.
    I hva the serial stamped at the front wall A:28526.

    Can anyone help me with this?
    Also, does anyone have the technical data on this trailer?
    Netto weight, gross weight, total weight etc etc.

    Thanks!

    I had the same problem with mine. I caused it myself by picking up a load of post and rail in it. I welded the joints myself and they've been good since. Rivet heads sometime shear or corrode off (I have a rivet gun and a box of rivets on standby just in case) and sealant joints failing near the wheels and around the front panel so it leaked (fixed). Other than that is been good. I gave up contacting Rice Richardson years ago as they NEVER answered emails.

    Hi all , hopefully someone can help me, I have just purchased an old rice Richardson cheap at 350 but need a little work.It would help me immensely if I actually knew what trailer it was for example I need a couple of wheel bearings. The serial number is S24158 and the model number is DL17.
    If anyone knows what model trailer I actually have it would be a great place to start in trying to source the parts I need(if it helps previous owner used it for his 17 hand and 17.2 horses and it has old landrover tyres on it.
