Depends on how far I am towing the trailer as to what I take.

If you check your bearings a couple of times a year, why would you take spares with you just for towing ?
cos s**t happens, usually in the worst possible place and when the garage that might just have had bearings has just closed for the day!

bl***y trailer brakes and bonded shoes!

I find a pair of PMR "walkie talkies" can be very handy in reversing/launch scenarios. Oddly, I tend to select good footwear when towing as well - decent boots seem to reward. I also pack rations - you never know...

The walkie-talkie is a good idea. I dont have a pair, so get my missus to phone me on the mobile. Then she can assist when Im reversing.

I can see bugger all behind when going round corners. Even with the van doors open Im pretty much guessing. I tried it on my own once and had to move 6 inches, get out, have a look, move another 6 inches and repeat for ages.
