5th wheel security
« on: March 02, 2009, 04:56:34 AM »
Any chance of a Brit' picking your brains please guys?

I'm about to purchase my first 5ver for use in the UK.
As these are a VERY rare beast in the UK, spares are difficult to source and most has to come from your side of the "pond".

What I'm looking for is a U.S based supplier who would ship a fifth wheel pin lock to the UK for me.
If anyone knows of a U.S supplier who will ship internationally, I'd be gratefull to hear.

Thanks.

NB.  Cross posted in the 5th wheel section........if that's OK? ;D

You could try Motorhome Medics and Stateside Tuning in the UK - both could get it.

My brother in law raps a heavey duty chain around the king pin and puts a heavy duty lock on.  You need a torch to cut through.  This may be an alternative to buying a commercial lock and cheaper!

If you haven't got one by the time I come back in September(ish) let me know and I'll bring you one - just missed me this time - arrived home in UK on Mar 11, last week.....  I use one from Camping World on my own trailer.

Nah - mac is my usual user name on forums but was already in use here.  Not very creatively I chose macmac  ;D - I live in Mansfield.   :(

glad you're sorted...
