Hello Imogene. I remember my first time towing when we bought our first trailer in 2004. Folks said "you won't even know it's there". Nonsense, I was very aware it was there and still am. That's a good thing I think. Check your hitch, set your brakes
, set your mirrors, and check your lights
before you leave. Drive with care and remember any place you drive into you have to get out. You'll be fine. Good luck, Raz
p.s. No clue what the rubber things are but there are lots of Scamp
owners here. Someone will.
