Photos of Grenadiers towing ~ I think many of us have plans to use them for this.

From FB (Paul Henderson), the first customer vehicle I've seen hooked up:

I just hope that the ball of the hitch is not too high. Otherwise you would have to rebuild the tow hitch on the trailer. Because it cannot be lowered on the vehicle.
Fingers crossed ~ hard to see on such a photo but it does look to be marginally up at the front when compared with the rear...

Didn't understand the comment " twin tow electrics" thought it was 13 pin UK standard

With twin electrics, there are two plugs to connect the electrics to the vehicle and each plug has 7 pins. Generally, older models of caravans and trailers will need twin electrics. When you choose twin electrics, as well as powering the minimum legal requirements of road lights when towing, you can also power your caravan’s fridge and charge the leisure battery.

Yes I know that, but 2 x 7 pin are now absolute and all trailers, caravans, horseboxes and cars are sold with the new 13 pin UK plug. (Ever since they made trailer reversing lights mandatory requiring the eight wires [excluding , 0.75 T trailers}). Various adaptors are of course available. The IG is NOT (or can't be) supplied with 2 x 7 pin plugs, ie twin electrics. I'm inclined to agree with @DCPU "No, that didn't make sense ~ maybe just confused by the NATO 2 pin socket" so I'm assuring he has gone for a winch or auxiliary battery option.
