Does anyone have any details of what type of trailers were used by the Wehrmacht - equate any info to British types please, as I know little about German stuff!
For instance the British used 10cwt General Service trailers for towing behind Jeeps etc, fitted with pintle ring. Did the Germans have something similar?
Thanks for any help .

Cheers dave. How does it couple up - pintle ring or other. Any pics of underneath layout? Any markings on axle ends?

Not on that one I'm afraid - it's a reproduction!

The originals used both hook/pintle and ball/socket type hitches.
