I think the nose weight on my trailer is nearly zero. I can lift it with two fingers. On a slip it goes to zero. It's all slo-mo stuff, to get the trailer from the water to it's bay, 150yds away.
Corners would be a fraction of the stress of towing a car out of a T junction.
I'm getting a towball welded up and threaded for its collar tomorrow for use over the weekend.
Will post pics and report.
I'm confident enough to take the car without the tow-bar. Irony being that the cars with the tow-bars don't have the facility for a towing eye!!!
