spare wheel, set of bearings & grease, jack that will actually lift the trailer when it has a deflated tyre and a bit of timber to put under the jack if I can get it under there. Long wheel brace thingie with enough leverage to shift a rusted (errm) wheel nut. Couple of small wheel chocks. Spool of tape to stick broken bits back together. And the card and telephone number for Green Flag "Mayday" cover. There is no way I'm changing an offside wheel or bearing on the motorway hard shoulder. Mate from our dive club was killed by a lorry whilst doing just that - I'll phone and have a man with a big truck and lots of flashing lights to protect the area for that job.

If you check your bearings a couple of times a year, why would you take spares with you just for towing ?

I've made a couple of spare wheel carriers for some customers, I welded a stub axle to a bracket, that way they can take a fully greased hub already done with the spare wheel. You can take the hub off your trailer with the wheel still on it and swop them over in no time

Because they never fail when the trailer is sat on the drive at home

Your probably correct - Im just trying to avoid taking more spares than I need.

I did get a puncture the other day, first one in about 20 years on the road. My little 2ton jack struggled - so Ive ordered a 3ton one instead.

But being a 4 wheel trailer it was not a problem getting the jack under.
