    Good price, as long as it includes the bit that goes on the TOAD.

    It might be useful to check out which small cars are most easily fitted with the A frame bar, if you are going to do it yourself.

    Welcome to the contentious world of A framing. Be prepared to be told regularly how you're breaking the law. . . :whatthe:

    Cheers

    hi bruce,
    checked out the cost of a new bar and brake cable kit before buying and the bar is £87 and the brake kit £39. so still a bargain.:thumb:
    gonna nick my old mums corsa (860kg) when she gets a new one after xmas so the toad is sorted.
    got to sell my camry 3ltr V6 AUTO. too many cars at once.:Eeek:
    still gotta get a towbar for the kontiki though. another £3/400:Eeek:
    as for legalities, i,ll let you know if i get pulled and 'done' but i doubt it!!!!

    Well done Pappajohn - good buy.

    I'm sure you'll love A framing, & wonder how you lived without it.

    Good luck!

    hi samm. nice to hear from you.:thumb: how you doing?
    Now.....you wouldn't be trying to sell me a car by any chance would you. ::bigsmile:
    i e-mailed this guy about wieght so i can get a courier but had no reply yet.
    might have to take a trip to southend on sea to collect unless he's really pissed at the price and done a bunk!!!!
    found a pub on ukcampsite with hookup/level pitchs about 20mls away so i may go in m/home and stay the night but it wont be cheap and a long, lonely drive on my own, 520 mls round trip/ 25 mpg. around £100 in diesel.:Eeek: ouch, plus whatever camping fee plus food and beer.
    becoming not so much a bargain now but still cheaper than £600 for a new one.:Eeek:

    see you soon. john.

    Well, if it's any help we sent our a-frame to the successful bidder by post. I was lucky, it was just over 20 kilos so only cost 23 quid. I think 40 kilos the price jumped to 60 or 70 quid!

    Regards
    Doug

    hi doug,
    thanks for that.
    i think these are around 29kg but the guy specified collect in person so he may not have the time/ inclination to parcel it and post at extra cost.
    never mind, cant think of anything better than to have a cruise down the motorway and a night away.

    john.
