    I am trying to invent, work out how to build an about face A frame...

    What it is..... The hitch (Ball Hookup) is on the car and the fixing as normal to the car is on the tow bar...

    So it would vitually become a =

    "Y" Frame...

    Would this be legal in Spain.... :thumb:

    "Sorry".... That should have gone in the U.shape lounge..

    No because it is the act of towing one vehicle on its wheels behind another that is illegal in Spain not the actual equipment used to make it possible.

    I think what you would have to do is turn it all ass about face. So you fit an a frame to the back of the car, the tow bar to the front of the MH and then you will be "pushing" the toad. Now I can't see any rules that say you cant "push" a car? :Wink:


    See you on Dragon's Den in a few weeks :thumb:

    I hear the Germans are not happy with the recent ban on Aframes and recent legislation to stop Yfronts and Speedos :Rofl1:
