Taken in 2010 , but the engine in BHC then  belonged in the 107Sw, so it still does the job.

I don't have a photo but last Sunday i towed a Volkswagon Passat up a 1in6 hill up to Monsall Head in reverse gear in the snow.
Probably not the best gear to use but i could not be ar--d to turn it around.

I don't have a photo but this Sunday I towed a fully loaded artic up a 1in5 hill in low ratio reverse full camo gear in the snow and a Force 10 typhoon.
Probably not the best ........  OK how did you know I was exaggerating?  Oh. of course I told you last week we don't have any snow,  :censored:

As much as I love them, it must be really, really slow going when towing with a 1600. With the hills around here they struggle to pull themselves!

A hoss trailer:

It used to have tongue & groove boarded sides until I replaced them with old ally sheet.
Always wondered what vintage this old trailer is.
