5th wheel repairs on the Costa Blanca, Spain

Coming back to the 5th wheel that lost a wheel and hub, the parts finally arrived from the States after what turned into a bit of a nightmare. The new hub, which was a special order part being the biggest culprit. We had to wait a while for it and then after it was eventually sent, it disappeared on it's way to our suppliers in the States and we had to wait for a second one.
We couldn't get a replacement alloy wheel or the body skirts in time, so had to go with the spare wheel and a bit of remaining damage.
There were some customs issues which were overcome, not without some difficulty but as a result, we are now registered, licensed and official importers in Spain.
This trailer had to be ready for today and this really was a no fail job!! In the nick of time, we pulled it off... Road tested, brakes adjusted, wheel nuts re-torqued and ready to go.

Unfortunately, there was not enough time to get a replacement wheel or body skirts
