tow balls

Heres the tow ball MK111!
After bending the MK11 and advice from Matthew I welded some extra bits on and it happily towed the caravan without bending!

Looks nice Dave, what do you do with the electrics when you remove it :?:

Cheers Nick
If it ain't broke, I'd be bloody suprised.

Am I right in saying Kingsonlim has his half way across his rear door, someone has anyway and it looked like a good idea.

I fitted a 13pin socket below the driver side rear lamp cluster, and uses an adapter/extension to bring the sockets back to the middle.

There are 2 types of adapter in the market, make sure you get the right one, 13 pin (male) to 2 x 7 pin (female) as shown above.
