It will have a 7pin 12n plug & you will need a 7pin 12n socket on your car. This will be the case if trailer is secondhand. New trailers are beginning to be supplied with the 13pin push&twist plug in 7pin format but most will still have 7pin.

Yep 13pin is the way forward, far more secure connection than the older style 7 Pin.
If the Trailer comes with a 7 pin Plug, then that is an easy DIY job to change to 13 Pin, like wise if the car is fitted with a 7 Pin socket I would be whipping that of and changing it over to a 13 Pin.
Thank you, that's what we were hoping (I meant 7 pin in my orig post). The tow bar we're having fitted is being fitted with 7 pin socket.
Picking the trailer up next weekend, it only started with a tent and sleeping bags!
Thanks for the reply
Only because we didn't research beforehand and assumed that's what we would need for the trailer.
All good though, our neighbour has had a look and says it will be fine for us, he does specialist mechanics for the military so I trust him :)
If we change to another trailer and it has 13 pin, he says he can swap the tow bar one in a jiffy.
