A racing success for Fifth Wheel
Did you know that we also design and build bespoke trailers? We’ve just built a fantastic trailer for motorcycle racing team, MPS Racing.
York-based MPS Racing, who specialise in enduro (off road) motorcycle events and regularly take young riders to the World Enduro Championships, needed a trailer that could carry five bikes and sleep up to eight people at the same time.
MPS Racing Manager, Mick Seward, explains: “We had our first fifth wheel trailer four years ago and it was such a great design that when we needed to upgrade to a bigger unit we called on the Fifth Wheel Company again.
“The team of designers are full of bright ideas and innovative solutions. The trailer attracts attention wherever we go!”
Using our fifth wheel technology, we built a 10 meter HGV trailer suitable for touring across the UK and Europe.
With riders travelling up to 200 miles a day for eight hours, as part of the World Enduro Championships, MPS needed a vehicle that offered two solutions in one – a trailer that can be left in the paddock on race day and a separate vehicle that could follow riders and carry out emergency servicing.
Our Operations Director Adrian Parry Jones, said: “We design and hand-build every Fifth Wheel tourer to the most exceptionally high standards.
“Whilst we primarily manufacture tourers for the leisure market, we also design bespoke trailers for commercial and business purposes. When MPS asked us to build a new trailer we jumped at the challenge.”
MPS, who regularly travel to Spain, Portugal and Slovakia for their love of racing, sponsor junior motorcycle riders under 23 and over the past four years, has assisted riders to two UEM Enduro titles.
