glad you got it sorted jonty, breakdown services are not much use for trailors or caravans, i had a blowout on a loaded boat trailor on junction between m4 and m25 second one that day already changed one on m25 so used my spare they were useless.
needless to say i now carry 2 spares when go any distance with a boat

Hi Jonty it sounds like a nightmare i suppose you were luck realy you was'nt on the motorway doing 60 mph. I once lost a wheel on a boat trailer in Spain and the indispension unit was flat on one side. We broke down 4 times on that trip to Spain and always got towed back where we had just been lol...anyway glad your sorted now ... Frank
