On a slightly different note?
Just thought I'd mention this as Rock_ten put a link to one of there trailers.
I bought one of these trailers from Product Online...
On there page it CLEARLY states SHIPMENT COSTS £9.95.
Well i'd no sooner bought and paid for mine via paypal when I got an email from them asking for another £30?
Seems they dont class Scotland as UK mainland?
So it only costs £9.95 to post any item of theres from the Netherlands to the UK but it costs £30 to post onto Scotland.
After many emails to and from them, I told them to cancle my order. About 10mis after I cancled it I got an email saying - "Iv'e had a word with my manager and he has agreed to waver the £30".
They have since updated there ebay pages to include that added postage to Scotland.
If anyone intends on buying one of these trailers please note that the hitch is NOT the best. All built up and hitch securly fastened on you can still pull the trailer towarm off no problem? The Cup on the towing arm isn't fully rounded and doesn't enclose onto the towball.
I only had it about an hour when it was off round to my mates to get him to weld 1/4in of tubing on the underside of the cup. - Hit a bump and trailer still pops off?
As I dont like towarms to the side or under the seatpost (When did you ever see a car towing a caravan or trailer with a pole attached to the back wheel or a pole through the back window attached to the seat?)
I intend to use my new Ball Joint Hitch to attach bike to trailer -
