I don't have one for sale... but be aware if you want to tow a British Airborne 75mm Pack Howitzer, you want one with 3 finger gap in the jaw... most have a 2 finger gap and will not take the British Tow eye for the howitzer.

You only tend to find out if you try to tow a 75mm Pack Howitzer, as I do.

Is that the reason why so many trailers are missing the early tow hitches and replaced with later ones?

Tim, is a 4cm gap the correct size?
