    Caratow in Poole often have pre owned vehicles for sale with the hitches already fitted. Our previous toad (Matiz, 5 doors and room for a collie even with 4 adults) came from them.

    The Matiz back seat folded down and would possibly have room for your dogs, though only allowing for two remaining seats. I my experience dogs are quite compressable, as I have seen big dogs who like to sleep in small baskets. My late Mothers Newfoundland used to sleep in a basket bought for a small Lab cross, even though there was a much bigger one available.

    The only vehicles that could take that fine looking pack would be too heavy to tow, unless you have a large RV, which I have seen towing sizeable 4x4s.

    Only other solution I could think of is to get a small van, but you're not likely to find one that already has a hitch, or to get a caravan and tow it with a Discovery or equivalent.

    Thanks for the reply, but the C1 is way too small for us.. We have 3 dogs, 1 is ten stone, 1 is 7 stone & the 3rd is a 5 stone pup at 5 months old.. So as you can see we need something a bit bigger which the seats fold flat.. Thanks anyway..

    I think of you put that lot on the seat it will fold flat automaticly.

    Have just put my Kia Picanto (5 door) up on the web site. Not sure if it will be big enough but the back seats do collapse and it has the benefit of air conditioning. Complete with Armitage A frame. £3300
