Must be a big engine in that little jeep.
Front wheel drive as well.
Of course it's legal
But only for recovery....
who can say Jim,oh:
the plod obviously arnt bothered cos the guy still tows it. :thumb::thumb:
I think the law states that the drive wheels must always be in contact with the road, hence the reason this guy has the front end down. It may well be that all wheels should be on the road (i'm not 100% certain on that though).
Either way....the owner of both vehicles must be a bit of a plonker to risk towing in this way. A small single axle car trailer which a Moke would easily go on would set him back no more than two or three hundered quid....but i suppose a plasma tv in his rv has first priority!
Is that a UK rig as i would love to carry my motorbike and tow my toad?
Yes the guys pulled up at Americana with it. They were one of three families that had just sold their houses, bought RV's and gone on the road Full Time.
I would not think that it can be legal as it has no brakes unless it is under 750 kgs that is, which maybe it could be! Isn't it a mini based 'moke'?
Isn't there a little twoseater buggy that can be towed like this only forwards by an extention bar with a tow ball cup?
Also it has the white numberplate showing to the rear and no towing vehicle numberplate at all!!!
A nice lightboard though!:thumb:
I think this one has got it very wrong aswell!!!
I am sure the MH in the OP was in Whitby earlier in the summer, I didn’t see the moke on tow, but they were parked in a lay-by just outside the town for a good few days.
at least the guy made one concesion to the law........
he fitted a breakaway chain, even if it is a bit large.
Hi, On a serious side to all of you who have towed??
Would the car being towed backwards make it easier when it comes to reversing ?
I am not quiet thinking of lifting the back of it up every time and hooking on as shown in the photo, but if you fitted a "A" frame to the back of a toad and pulled it backwards would that make the reversing easier
Looks like a Mini Moke replica to me.
He must have some way of locking the steering in the "straight ahead" position.
Can't do the tyres much good though, If I remember correctly they toe out so pulling it backward would tend to scrub the tyres on the outer part of the tread, especially if there was wear in the track rod ends.
Perhaps that's how it self centres the steering.oh:
Watch out for a very low mileage, getting lower every time he goes away, toad for sale.
