Seems someone left them sitting on the WWII Sattler Airstrip, trouble was I couldn't find a spare Converter Dolly to shove under the first trailer .

Think this might have put you over your towball weight so just as well you didn't have a dolly.

Just the weight of a dolly A-Frame would be down weight,all other weight would be on the axles , but the stress would be lateral.

G'day Doug--- Just wondering whether you would tow this in 4th gear or would you use 5th???

There seems to be a lot who suggest 4th gear in the troopy's and Cruisers...

Some people use bricks as wheel chocks to stop trailers moving, but obviously putting a Toyota in the way works as well. Good value too, saving a useful brick.
Cheers
I'll get there someday, or die wanting to.

Very Cheeky,
often seen trailers parked there, but never thought of parking the Prado in front of them. Very clever work.
