This will work itself out. Welcome to the world of litigation (not unlike a chess match) where no one wants to concede defeat. Considering the process is ongoing, best not to comment for the time-being. Good luck.

Hi Daves - welcome to Ribnet!

Sorry for your trouble. Sounds like very bad service from Salterns.

Hope it gets sorted for you soon.

In all my experience I've found that it's always the insurance companies that slow everything down, keep a log of all your expenses and time you have wasted in sorting it out, the insurance companies will squabble with each other, asign a loss adjuster, leave it to the last minute to make you an offer, good luck!

It is difficult to tell from the pictures. I don't know what the weight distribution is on a Sealegs, but the axles on the trailer look to be a long way forward, possibly in the middle of the trailer. If the Sealegs is very tail heavy, it would make the trailer very twitchy and prone to snaking. The LR Hi Cap being a pickup, is light on the tail as well. When towing with defenders, I like to have the trailer nose heavy as it tows so much better and safer. If the trailer setup is not correct for the Sealegs, that may have contributed to the accident?

Those rear wheels look absolutely massive. Are they electrically powered?
