What happened.

Come on! I need more knowledge.
It was quite simple really I was towing a boat that was over the weight limit (by about a ton) and it got away from me on the junction of the M4/M5 Disco is pointing the wrong way down the M5 and the Trailer and boat still attached were pointing in the right direction on the M4

All in all it was more trouble than it was worth

Oh to be a farmer

Our disco has gone now.

My waltz on the 27 was due to the fact that I had not read the manual.

The Air suspension required in ther region of 200lbs on the nose of the hitch.

To get it to firm up I suppose.

When they craned the boat back on right up the railer, everythign was OK.

I have been told that you can have the trailer heavier than the towing vehicle on three counts.

Trailer not on overun brakes if over 3'5 tons gross.

Gross train weight not exceeding 7.5 tons.

And this is the good bit.

You put a 40 MPH hour sticker on the trailer board and dont exceed 40!
