  5. Fun in Gosty Hill tunnel

    Do, it's worth the trip to Hawne Basin. The back-of-the-map is quite different to the rest of the BCN Richard

  7. trailer with surge brakes

    It does. I used an 8' x 4' trailer to move two electric cement mixers. Moving them to the job, I had them strapped together in the middle over the axle. On the return I had one at each end of the trailer. With them at the ends, the trailer became unstable and snaked easily. I moved the mixers back to the middle and it was fine again. Nose weight and overall weight were the same Richard
