Jen

Aldi may well have left over Hitchlocks and wheel clamps.
Not sure about the wheel clamps (As in not looked, not as in not keen) but the hitchlocks are as good as anything.
If you pass Bolton they have a mountain of the wheel clamps think they have been reduced to £10 or £11.
Honest this is not all duff gen. It was the other Destiny I was raving about honest.

Its best to use both but if the designer has 10inch wheels make sure your wheel clamp will go down to that.

Yes, I think they are 10inch and as yet cant find a clamp that small, have rang the owners ( at the moment they are...lol) and they say it has a hitch lock thank god as there are not any caravan type dealers round here, just one small camping shop and they dont sell them. So problem solved.

i bet the wheel clampers have clamps small enough.You can buy the clamps that lock just around the tyre and edge of rim i think these are universal.We don't have a wheel clamp just a hitch lock and a big grumpy Woof Woof its seems to work lol!
