I would have hoped you'd buy a bit of hosepipe off the monkey or you could use it to secure the boat to the trailer with a padlock.

Honest upon hitch separation you have no directional control of trailer so it can go one way and the car goes another Trailer will flip car over very easily or spear the rear end and possibly fracture the tank.

You owe the monkey a Banana

Sorry
I would strongly disagree. You do not want trailer separation to occur. Chains should be used to prevent separation and keep the hitch of the ground. You will have a good chance of recovery if chains are used. Without, a trailer hitch separating, tongue hitting the pavement, braking,etc will likely flip and kill other people as well as guaranteeing the loss of the trailer. Also runaways on ramps can be prevented. I don't think 300 million North Americans are wrong on this one.

No, but the local constabulary and your insurance company might not agree if they apply the relevant laws. Have 300m Americans got trailers - wow - thats like one each!
I have unbraked trailer with restraint cable attached to tow bracket (not the bit that bolts on with the tow ball).

i guess you have to be in an accident with a secured out of control trailer to really know the answer. I wonder if its worth doing a search and finding out. ROSPA is our safety accident site whats it called in America. by the way If 300 million Americans can't be wrong why is George Bush in power sorry couldn't stop that one

the point of the breakaway cable is to apply the brakes on the trailer if the coupling fails and then to breakaway, cos that's the way we do it over here. if it was meant to be an other way then the cable would be stronger

I believe American trailers to be the best made by far but the trailers are illegal to use over here. in all honesty I believe the African hoe or Nato hitch is the best coupling and don't feel good about the Amrican coupling system

I think you will find towing regulations are harmonised across Europe. So 300m Americans are right but 450 Europeans are wrong?

I like the nato hitch too wish they'd make it cheaper or easier to swap from nato to ball again, must be possible surely!

Did the monkey get his banana?
