    I am getting old ...... I just fitted these on my trailer.
    I have never needed them before not even in a cross wind but I do now ...... it's a prick of a feeling .

    Wiser Tac, you're getting /wiser/. You've reached a stage in life where you're choosing to work smarter not harder.... ;) :D

    Narh not working harder , many years ago I used to work in a boat storage yard so on a busy day I could put up to 30 boats in and out of the drink , everything from 14' tinnys to 25' Bertram flybrige cruisers so I got very good at it .
    I just noticed in the last 6 months I mised the rollers twice and it stuffs up the hull a bit ...... so figured it was time to do something .

    Nothing wrong with admitting your getting older Tac the last fe months I've noticed I can't tie hooks clearly and read fine writing but everything else is fine.

    Well our van is finally on site. A couple of minor little things to do, I've allowed myself 2-3 years to get these done God willing. I'll post some picts when I get around to taking some. It's relaxation time.

    Most of the little things I wanted to do are done. The park is great and so is the site we have. I had company the first night my little mate made her self at home and crawled into bed with me.

    Kev Sally and I will be picking up a very similar rig to yours this week, just got electric brakes fitted to the paj. She is the main driver behind getting the van. Looking for a bit more comfort.
    Cheers Pete
