Don't quite get what the problem was, I'm guessing you drove off with a hitch and a bow snubber in tow & left the rest behind?

If you have an extending / adjustable drawbar, I'd suggest changing those bolts annually if you do a lot of towing - I had a similar thing on a multi dinghy trailer (short for Oppies, long for Lasers kind of thing) and the bolts wore down at the point they go through the drawbar.

For the cost of a couple of nuts & bolts and 5 mins to change them it's not worth not doing.
