Trailer Accessories are the extra items you may need for your Trailer or caravan like towing aids, mirrors, ramps or securing straps, electric plug converts (7 to 13 or 13 to 7 pin plug connectors), Security couplings and wheel locks to deter the thieves and even winches for car transporter or boat trailers. We also supply spare wheels, spare wheel carriers and wheel covers.

Electrics & Sockets Older Trailers & Caravans may have 7 pin electrics (the socket that connects the electrics to the car & trailer) Newer trailers and caravans after 2008 may have electrics with 13 pin connectors. (trailers may have new 13 pin type connector but only have 8 pins in use) These plugs & sockets often get damaged effecting the operation of the trailer lights etc. We also sell the wiring, sockets & relays required on the towing vehicle.

Trailer couplings are rated for their pulling weight capacity, and have braked and none braked versions, trailers and caravans over 750Kg max loading will have brakes on the trailer wheels, requiring the correct mechanism on the coupling to apply the brakes and hand brake. Braked couplings also require servicing to maintain safe operation, we sell various service parts for this type of coupling, including bellows and dampers etc.

Jockey wheels are a useful extra for a small trailer to aid trailer manoeuvring and hitch up to the towing vehicle, we sell a all the items required to add a jockey wheel  to a small trailer, without the need for drilling. Jockey wheels are a necessity for heavy trailers and come in various weight ratings. we also sell the wheels separate to replace damaged ones, these come in various wheel widths & diameter sizes.
