Hi all

I used a taller mast support on my Moores combi trailer, but my van is only 2.5m high. Ideally I would also have had a mast support placed in the boat where the mast would normally go, to prevent the mast swaying from side to side. I did thousands of miles with this configuration!

I have sucessfully towed my lady behind 3 different motorhomes now with the mast on the boat.

With the mast foot at the front of the trailer, a legal over hang of 1metre at the rear is achieved. To be ultra cautious, I also use a ‘flag’ at the mast tip.

The main advantage of this method is that you don’t have to derig the mast every time you tow.
