• The drawbar fits over the towbar to attach and is height adjustable.

Wheels
• Two rear pneumatic wheels extend from the back of the carrier.
• The wheels can pivot, which assists in stopping the carrier from articulating with the vehicle.
• The wheels have mudguards and mudflaps.
• The spare wheel sits under the carrier in a lockable container.
• Independent suspension on each wheel
