    The towing brackets dont actually touch the bumpers, I can remove them and replace with grommets, may keep them for if I visit "That London" though

  3. Excellent job and an interesting looking thing.
    I must admit I didn’t much like towing a little trailer behind the bay, I think a couple of sticks in each rear corner would’ve helped when reversing though, couldn’t see it until it was going too far the wrong way.

    Thats the joy of a one wheel trailer, you only have to worry about the lenghth, it always remains in line with the van, you never even see it in the mirrors.

    Maiden voyage, all went well but I was not prepaired for the mechanical brutality of the skid wheel.

  13. I hadn’t realised that the wheel swivels and the trailer is a fixed extension of the vehicle, all makes perfect sense now.
    None of the “where the heck is that invisible trailer pointing” while reversing that I didn’t like, and no need for sticks in each corner!
    Your restoration looks brilliant and goes with the bus really well.
