    Just remember it's there when you pull out of a junction or roundabout, and when overtaking a truck. Look well ahead and read the road, get your foot down a bit earlier than usual to get you up the hills where possible....but most of all....enjoy and to hell with the sceptics! No one is wrong no one is right, we are all individual. :thumb:

    No problems

    We A-frame a Ka when we are likely to be on site for a few days ..... you just have to remember it's behind you and allow a little more space and time and using your mirrors particularly on tight corners.

    dont pull into dead end roads.......if the brakes are properly adjusted you CANNOT reverse.

    if you can reverse your brakes need adjusting.

    OMG !!!! what have a started now :Doh:

    make sure you don't let the steering lock come on... if you see your car in your right hand mirror overtaking you, you know its on :winky:


    I've towed all over UK with my car, never been stopped, only once had a copper bang on my window to say my van was signalling right, the car was signalling left :Doh:
