I think I'm going to buy a polo Maybe a 1.9 Tdi and a long rope.

I think provided I keep off the slimey part of the slip I'll be OK. I'll let you know how I get on!!

Thanks for all the good suggestions.

Anybody want a Shogun?? (looking forward to 'nipping' to Wales rather than 'lumbering' there as per usual)

if you have a problem you can always ask a chap with a 4x4 if one around, they will probably only be too chuffed to help you out if you get stuck, will give em something to tell their friends about after.....

You could get a Tirfor - very slow but serious power - always carry one - never know when you might need it!!!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Tirfor-Type-80...QQcmdZViewItem

This one will lift 800kgs but will pull a hell of a lot more.

You could park the car on solid ground and winch the trailer a few feet towards it.
