Re: Car Trailers

as a brief aside , similar rules came in for tow bars some years ago to the effect that any towbar fitted to and vehicle after that date was requred to have a type approval plate fitted to it , Old bars on old cars were not effected .
this sounds the same but to the trailers themselves .

Re: WICKED WELSH 2012 DATES CONFIRMED

Hello boys and girls!!! I definitely want to go next year. This year was great. I kept a low profile so as not to upset any Clown-phobic types. For that reason I didn't stay at the Rising Sun, I snuck into a local B&B instead. They were fully booked so I had to wait until lights out then crept into...

Re: Strange Holes

For those getting ideas about tow bars fitted this way...DONT. Any tow bar must be fitted so that the force is taken by the chassis rails, the rear crossmember will bend if you pull from the centre resulting in the engine responding to the force of gravity :shock: All of the tow bars I've fitted to...
