Thanks Andy, and many thanks for your advice.

Laurence Lock did indeed sort out the trailer issue - the whole package weighs in at 1700kgs, 50 less than the max braked tow weight of my X3!

Forgot to say - cracking photo - just the right amount of shutter speed and panning to give a nice bit of blur to the background - gives a nice impression of speed!!!

Unless you did it in Photoshop of course!!!

No, it's the real deal! Of course, I didn't take it, as I'm the one driving! The great pic is down to a good mate, who bought my old RIB. He's skulking around here on RIBnet somewhere.....thanks DD
