    The time as come to sell my Isuzu Trooper, its a cracking car but not what we need, we brougt it 6 years ago when we were tuggers, but as we no longer need anything this big

    I have been thinking of getting something like a Focus/Astra/Megane which i could occasionally use to toad behind the M/H when in the Uk

    Any suggestions or recommendations

    :Cool: We have a 2006 KIA Picanto. Has 4 doors and seats 4. Have (not really legal?) carried 2 BIG, 2 Normal, 1 x 7 month old baby and a push chair in reasonable comfort. Does between 45 and 55 mpg and I burnt off a Ford Focus through the Mountains here in Spain. :thumb:

    Hagers, how can you feel alive in a hearse:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Larry looking for something a bit bigger, thought about a C4, need space for a doberman,

    I think what ever we go for it will have to have a towbar just to protect the dog, as most cars these days have crumple zones in the boot area

    :Doh: To think, I have just towed it 1500 miles and driven another 100 or so without any thought of a SPARE WHEEL. There isn't one.
    Yes I DO have the bottle of GUNGE. But NO Adaptor. There is also a Tyre PUMP. :Smile: A Micro Torch, a Towing Eye and a Spanner. But NO GUNGE Adaptor. :Blush:
