Please contact Wian directly if this was your trailer.

Hi Andy,
The Poster on the Hilux Face Book Page, Does he have a picture of the trailer, or The registration number, which was what I would be looking at in the picture.
In that way we could trace the owner, to get something of his back to him. Big loss, but maybe he could have done some type of recovery.
Years ago we emptied the trailer into the vehicle and transported the trailer on top of the vehicle, but situations differ...

No picture posted. I guess he's wanting the owner to verify ownership with the reg. no.

No, not broken but just realised that it's a FB Messenger communication to the FB page admin ..... of course you cannot all read it, so here is the message .....

Hi, ek het n trailer die 26ste gekry tssn Marienfluss en Orupembe wat se dusselboom af gebreek het met julle bumper sticker op.

Edge, if I can get the reg no, do you still have a contact to get the owner details through NATIS?

Hi Andy, where there is a will there is a way.
If it is to help a forum member, a plan will be made...
If you can find out exactly where the trailer is, I will be in the vicinity during May,
but may not be driving the exact track/road that they used/where the trailer is.
We tend to move off the tourist routes where possible.
The going then normally has less corrugations/damage...

We're still not having any luck tracing the owner. Apparently the number plate and licence disc were removed (maybe for de-registering purposes or building a new trailer).

In the meantime we have a couple of pics and hopefully someone recognises it.

If anyone recognises the trailer and knows who the owner is, please let us know. Thanks.
