FOR THE DIY LOVERS
Trailer Guides are a marriage saver, argument stopper and best of all gives mum time to do more productive jobs. Often mums are asked to assist dad’s in the hitching of the caravan or give directions to help with reversing of a low lying boat trailer or 6×4. As we all know in these tense times we don’t always have the same left and right and our hand gestures are not always helpful, not to mention very different interpretation of distance. If Dad is the proud owner of the innovative TrailerGuides he is able to do all of these jobs on his own. Or even better mum could do some of them for him. Australian made multipurpose visual aid to assist in hitching, driving and reversing many different towed vehicles. www.trailerguides.com.au
