Erde no longer supply the body strengthening steel braces with the load bars for Erde 120 to 122 and 141 & 142, Daxara 125 to 127 and 146 & 147 models. the load bars can still be fitted to these models but the lid must not be raised when there is a load on the bars otherwise damage to the trailer base and sides may occur.
- Place the cover upside down and drill 8 holes in the ABS steel frame cover (using an 8.5mm drill) using the pre-drilled holes at 1 in the steel frame as a guide.
- Loosely assemble the load bars as per the diagram below, using 4 x bolts M8x16 at 3, 8 x M8x50 bolts and M8 nylocks at 2. There are two settings that parts 5 and 6 can be fitted together, the lower holes are correct for all trailers except the 190 models where parts 5 and 6 should be fitted in the higher position.
- Fit the bars to the ABS cover using the 8 x M8x35 bolts with domed heads, flat washers, star washers and plain nuts at 4 as per the diagram below.
- Making sure that the telescopic bar top bar is central and horizontal, tighten all the nuts & bolts.
If you find there are no pre-drilled holes
