Another (minor) towing problem

Not as bad as Mark's problem but yesterday BOTH the "R" clips that hold the lightboard on to the trailer fell out and I dont know how long I was dragging the bloody thing along the road for but its knackered now.

Any thoughts on the best place get a new one in the Southampton area - Indespension in Park Gate? Towsure in Bitterne?

At the rate peeps break them, has to be Towsure, half the price of Indespension.

Pete J,

Use the type of locating pins that have a semi circular wire safety clip that goes around half the section of tube and then holds the other protruding end of the pin. They can be swines when your hands are cold but they are very secure. I'll try and find a supplier for you if someone doesnt post one in the meantime.
New boat is here, very happy!

RM trailers do a very heavy duty one of which I have one. It's a regular lighting board inside a galvensied steel frame, with cages over the lights to protect them, seperate fog light, and clip things to allow you to change your number plate over easily without drilling holes in it.
