    Just returned from 4 weeks in France. Only saw cars on trailers being towed behind motorhomes. Not one A frame.

    The 'Swiss Tony's' were trying to do a roaring trade at Peterborough.

    How about removing the fuse for the ECU so it does n't go and claim it is broken down, even demonstrate it.

    Loath as I am to revive such a dangerous topic...

    I'm on El Raco in Benidorm where there must be a dozen folk using A Frames...including, unusually, a Dutchman on the next pitch to me.

    So that's one site in one Spanish town...how many A Frames might there be currently in Spain?

    Just wondering...like :rolleyes:.

    Suppose you dare risk it if you both can drive but bit of a bummer if only one drives and you get pulled,,Still think if you need a car tugging is the sensible option,,,,BUSBY,,,

    As my car is FAR more economical than the van . I THOUGHT about, putting the 'A' frame on the van and pulling THAT, with the car it seems to save a lot of money that way around and the Police would not notice.

    We only tow an A-Frame so we have somewhere to sleep at night. That way we can be sure we won't get gassed in the motorhome (y)

    I forgot to ask is there a motorhome that does not have a heavy engine in it so that I could pull it easier with the car???? that would make it a lot more economical still. I could even leave it parked up somewhere while I drive off to see the sites.
