i just won a car a tow A frame on E-BAY.:thumb:
a bargain or what?
Great bargain.. all you need now is the toad ..
oh:and a towbar on the van oh:
got a car but its auto so it will have to go.
I sold mine on Ebay last month for £225!
Not a bad buy I think John!:thumb:
Sound good any idea what make it is?
as posted it's a CAR-A-TOW by PRO-TOW.
That's is a really good deal:thumb::thumb:
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. . .
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.
still gotta get a towbar for the kontiki though. another £3/400
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.
been A frameing my suzuki sj410 for a couple of years on a homemade unbraked frame so i know the pitfalls and the pleasures.
looking forward to being able to leave site for the day without all the hassle.
hiya.............great bargain..all you need now is a daewoo matiz 800cc in bronze y reg.....i know where there is 1 for sale.....you getting my drift john hhee hhee
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.
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. 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.
see you soon. john.
hi john...still a good price..hopefully the guy wont go back on the price...if you go for it im sure you will have a good time too...shirl text me the other day to arrange a meet up with yopu guys....so just give me a few weeks notice & we will have some fun...oh and beer!!! :thumb:
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!
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.
looking forward to it samm. we'll let you know when.:thumb:
Good price John try www.postvan.com they will pick it up i think its around 30 quid
but i have used them a few times very good
