Yeah, that's cause they don't pull Real American trailers. The one pictured is for sale in my neighborhood- you can pull around a full garage + covered parking for your Sportsmobile, with your Sportsmobile!

Re: Small mod to my trailer

Quite right Jage, we have only miniture stuff over here

But that's the way it is, at least the Vans aren't too small... unless you look at that new VW Bulli thingy...

Here are some more pictures of my Trailer it is small has a standard ball hitch but the red thing you see in the picture is a lock so I don't get it towed away be someone else The rubber sleave is to cover the breaking mechanism...

I like it. Nice usable mod that looks original. Good Work.

Re: the hitch, just for my edification how does it work? I know that European hitches are different sometimes but can you show pictures of how it actually goes together?
