Perhaps investing in a rear view camera would be wise ?
Easy to do on these AT's with long overhangs.
Did mine last week turning into a pub at Stoke.. !! Luckily I have towbar fitted and that took all the brunt of it, however ripped all the plastic coating... In 3 years this is about the 4th time my towbar has saved the back of the van.. A very wise investment, especially as i got it for £150...
Good luck with the repair...

Mine is also the corner what is it like to fit?I reversed my Autotrail into a pile of bricks and broke the plastic rear corner.
Check how much the new part is with Autotrail.
My bit was only £90 and came in the correct colour etc.
I just grounded ours today but looks like the only damage is to the rear brushes. Thank goodness for the towbar.
Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I know that way of doing it, perhaps the 40mm drop was a tad too much?The like was that there is no damage not because you grounded. Easy to do..... a friend had a sports car that was so low to the ground it had to go up ramps at an angle......
Thats ok on an RV with the length of RSJ they call a hitch receiver but nothing strong enough on a eurobox except a towbar.....and if you have a towbar its just more weight carrying a hitch wheel as well.you could fit a skid wheel. .. had one on my RV hitch.. saved damage when boarding ferries .. etc.
just an example.. this one is for an RV type hitch..
you could use any industrial trolley wheel
HITCH PROTECTOR SKID WHEEL - 94-8351-94-8351.jpg
Durable 3" wheels for cars and pickups keep receivers and hitch posts from roadway damage. Attaches with hitch pin (not included). Use with or without your trailer.
