    :Smile:How difficult is it to tow a car, do I need a special A frame connected somehow to the steering gear? I only want to tow it for a couple of months until I sell it, anyone towing?:thumb:

    if you can tow a trailer you can tow a car :thumb:

    more stable than a trailer as well.

    but you will need an 'E' catagory on your licence...C1+E

    :Cool: We don't even notice our Kia Picanto Toad on the back until we go around a roundabout. :Rofl1:

    However, we have also towed cars with another car HUNDREDS of miles with one of these:-
