Google "snatch block" mate they're a must have in your 4x4 recovery kit
Like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/14-tonne-s...item416e86c005
In fact you should have two then you can pull yourself out backwards with only one winch

Thumbs up Landlocked Trailer /Caravan

Okay is it going to be a Granny Flat or a summer sleep over house?

Looks too good a van to be a shed I am guessing plumbed in water & mains with possibly a sewer pipe as well ? Cheaper than moving house for an extra bedroom with ensuite.

Do not know about caravans especially twin axle but if it is anything like a car trailer then could be around 3 tonnes, Rick

It was going to be semi permanent accommodation for a guy and his Mrs with a couple of kids, but about 6 months after we sited the van they split up, so it is no longer there, Rick

Rick I can hardly remember last year let alone 6 years back
No idea what I was on that night, but yes you're right, three turning points needed.
Worst case you could use d shackle but high resistance ofcourse.
I have a rear winch which is about the same cost as three good snatch blocks
Good work again Rick
