Hi, Can anyone advise what type of hitchlock i need for a hobby 635 uk special, thanks, George.

Depends what type of hitch you have is it a winterhoff or Alko also you will probably need two wheelclamps as your van is a twin axle are you intending to tour with your van or site it permanently as you cannot legally tow these overwidth hobby's on the UK roads unless you use a Transit van or similar with 3500kgs GVW

A Four wheel drive no matter how big or heavy is not legal to use

If it has the Winterhoff hitch, then you need the Robstop hitchlock

 

Hi, Have seen one on ebay, do you have to fit another part to van in order for this robstop to work, or can you simply lock it onto hitch, many thanks, George.

If it is this one

Ebay item

 

 

Then it is complete but weigh up the delivery costs and for a wee bit extra you can have a brand new one from the caravan shop

MANY THANKS< WILL BUY NEW.

 

 

Be aware there are two versions (and prices) of the Winterhoff WS3000 hitchlock available. The round bar may be 13mm or 19mm diameter. Only the 19mm is approved by Dutch & German Insurance Companies. A couple of years ago some Dealers were selling the 13mm version in boxes marked with a 19mm sticker at 19mm price, seems there were some "grey imports". As a quick check the 13mm version can be locked by pushing the lock button without the key in the slot but the 19mm version needs the key turned to let the locking bar enter and is a much stronger lock. I speak from experience.
