I know some have had issues with Smart cars etc,, what are the options?

Not looking for a big car, not looking for an A Frame (owned by an ex smoker)

Looking for a sensible, low cost runaround that can be towed.

Suggestions?

Wait until October and see what the new law and regs bring.

New centre axle/overrun brakes trailer law may rule out cars as toads.

Only time will tell.

I thought about this for a while. We are away for a while from next weekend and as part of that we are in Windermere for 5 nights so we're hiring a car for 4 days. Cost will be about £150.00 and that will be the only time we're away this year where we will want/need/wish we had a car. We have to walk a mile or so to get it and both of us can drive it. Pretty much a no brainer to me.

Towing a 2001 Nissan Micra was easy. The a-frame was set up so well you didn't know it was there (even when subjected to an emergency stop in France)
