    Great trailer. 👍
    Ha ha, not wrong! It only gets the tow jobs on the short trips. The D1 does the work on the longer trips. Mind you overall stability and brakes are far better in the Dyna. Definitely not comfort or speed!

    Mine is just a slug! Ha ha! But bulletproof.

I have a double jockey wheel setup, a set of timber chocks between the axles plus the handbrake and use the breakaway cable to apply the electric brakes. So it does not roll at all. Then just use the chains to control the upward movement as a back up. Not that it can go anywhere when it bottoms out anyway.
    Its not so much the lack of ground clearance that makes life difficult ... (well actually it does damn it ... last friday I tried to tow a dead one from the leanto on the sideof my shed, into the shed .... and the **** of a thing bellied out on the gravel under the carport )... Hang on I'll hit google images and find the picture of one ... 'cos I'm sounding like a nutty moron here ...



    This isn't my car ... but see what I mean by ground clearance. The wheelbase is longer than a big old chev impala ... and maybe 1/4" of ground clearance. Its the wheelbase that catches you out. The only thing I've ever seen easily load one (as in absolutely effortlessly) was a flat tray truck... the local guy that does hotrods. He loaded one that had flat tires and was pretty much sitting on its belly (amazing to watch). His tray is long and has a really low approach angle when lowered down to the ground.
