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!
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
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.
