hi, everybody,

As you will know if you have been reading my topics, about buying my first Dandy.

I asked the man I bought the Dandy off off, what kind of tow bar I needed, and was told an ordinary 7 pin.
I have had a Witter tow bar fitted, and now my Dandy has been delivered found it is an ALKO DGM 32825 RI/S 1992

Good job I didnt go to Norfolk

Will I now have to change the ball, through this person giving me wrong info?

Regards
Patricia

No idea about specific model numbers, but as far as I am aware 50mm is standard, and a ordinary black plug.

However some trailers that are older 7/8ths ball (47.5mm

The seven pin the gentleman is talking about is the electrics nothing to do with the tow bar or tow ball. If there is an alco hitchlock on your dandy you need an alco tow ball,Its got about half inch longer neck, but if u got an ordinary hitch lock anytow ball will do.Futher more if you got an alco hitch lock the tow ball must be clean and no grease as the friction pads will not work on your anti swearve
