This review is of a Freighter Eziliner B Double Trailer set. 

It is in light blue colours. 

Packaging

It comes in a Freighter-branded box.  Inside, the parts are contained within expanded polystyrene trays. 

There were no missing parts or defects on the review kit.

A Freighter marketing brochure is included, and this is a nice document.  Also provided is an instruction sheet describing the features and functions of the Freighter trailer models.   Another very nice inclusion is a sheet describing various configurations of Australian road trains.

Detail and  Features

The set comprises two trailers, and the details and features are of the same standard for each.

The trailer chassi ar modelled well, and hoses run to each axle.  The wheels and tyres look good and working suspension is provided which is nicely engineered.

The plastic storage boxes have highlighted handles and sharp graphics

The landing legs can be lowered by unscrewing.  The fifth wheel on the front trailer is operated by a lever which grips the kingpin of the following trailer.  Hose connections have tidy storage points.

The B trailer sits a little high on the A trailer fifth wheel which seems to be due to the long king pin used.

The trailer boxes have an excellent paint finish and sharp graphics.

The B trailer has opening doors which achieve a good angle.  The inside of the trailer is fully lined.  The detailing of the doors has highlighted locking bolts.

Two spare wheels can be stored under the B trailer deck.  Gates can also be stored under both trailers, but because of the clearances only a couple will fit comfortably on the rack under the B trailer.

Optional 'Road Train' or 'Long Vehicle' signs can be added.

Quality and Price

These are well made trailers with a high metal content, with plastic used appropraitely. 

The models are high quality, and the price reflects it.

Overall

These are very nice box trailers which are attractive in the light blue colour scheme.  They pair well with a suitable prime mover.
