    Some A frames use pretty standard caravan hitch parts, so probably any caravan dealer could help.

    there isnt really anything to service except a squirt of grease in the sliding hitch nipple and a drop of oil on the handbrake linkages.

    The cable will be A frame manufacturer only i reckon.

    Ill follow this with interest.
    My aframe brake cable has snapped at the part it attaches to the brake pedal....

    presumably that will be a measured up part, so may have to contact towsure as they fitted it initially.

    Try Barlow Trailers near Leyland. Here are their details. They are a main Ifor Williams Agent ( I think) I used them once about 10 years ago, when I was still working. My Boss needed some parts for his Trailer. I'm sure they would have the parts you need. :BigGrin: BillyS

    If its a Caratow A frame then Leisure Power of Warrington should be able to assist, as they are agents for Caratow. :thumb:

    bear in mind the brake cable is different to any other.

    Caravans are normally rod operated to the axle then cable to the drums.

    The pedal end is designed to fit the pedal and the length is important......too short and it wont fit...too long and you need to lose the excess length without kinking it, and that aint easy under a car bonnet

    Ring the manufacturer..they are only a few quid.
