How to cope with a broken trailer axle

Post by Peter Connan »

Quite a pickle, and I think quite an innovative approach taken here.



You can skip to about 15 minutes if you only want to see the problem and solution.

They did great under the circumstances.

Would the Cruiser not have been a better towing vehicle in that instance. The towbar is higher, unless the Fortuner did not have a winch?

I don't think the Fortuner's cront suspension would handle the load as well?
