I'm a newbie had a wobbly box when adam was a lad
Now I am the proud owner of a motorhome, my attention has shifted to a tow car, thinking of a Hyundai i20 1.2 it's the only one that looks big enough to carry a mobility scooter and 2 dogs anyone have one?

We have a Fiat 500 Abarth….admittedly, no mobility scooter, but comfortably have a Doberman and German Shorthaired Pointer in the back with the seats down and there’s loads of room!!

We are in Holton le Clay now but were in Redditch when I got the system fitted. Recently had the system checked over due to intermittent fault (fuse) plus also telephone advice is freely given

We can also recommend LNB in Bristol, although the OP sounds like Tow Bars 2 Tow Cars is a lot closer, although we are in Louth, Lincs and still chose LNB 😁

OH's car is a 63 plate i20. Fairly roomy for a runabout. Back seat doesn't fold completely flat but I can get a lot of stuff in for a tip run. Whether it would take the mobility scooter and dogs would depend on the size of both the scooter and dogs.

had a look at an I10 too small, so think the I20 will do, but going to a local dealer to try reality

Holton Le clay, now that brings back memories. Spent the first 25 years of my life in New Waltham. Sorry for the thread drift.🤣

Okay I'm going to be a bit controversial here but it's a personal view and I don't mean any offence.

But if you need two mobility scooters as well as room for two dogs why did you buy a motor-home and then start looking for a "toad"? Surely a caravan would have been a much better option along with a decent towing vehicle that had the room you're looking for at probably far less cost? Because you're going to have to park up on campsites etc. so you have somewhere to leave the Moho, which in my view is not what they're for.

Or am I missing the point and you have decided you'd prefer something small to run around in?

Yes, the facelift one is more spacious I think. Ours is on a 14 plate, so pre-facelift

I am surprised
We’ve used them previously and as we travel down to Devon/Cornwall at least once a year they are located right at the side of the M5 and have parking facilities etc. you can even overnight there and they have a EHU if required. I am sure Tow Bar 2 Tow Cars are very good, but we just like the customer service etc. we’ve had over the years with LNB.

Exactly same with Up. Rear folds flat. We regularly had 3 people wheelchair and 3 boxes of shopping. A friend eventually changed to a vw transporter to carry his 3 dogs a jack Russel and 2 Sr Bernards

Did I mention 2 scooters don't think so, and I've moved from a caravan

Much easier than towing a caravan(tugger for 30 years) much more comfort travelling,cool in hot summers warm in cold weather,with caravan you either roast or freeze for the 1st hour.Oh and did I mention all comforts on board if planned right water etc,so just hook up when you get there and straight into relax mode!

Got a MH for the same reason and I've found one with Alde heating that's the one thing I would have missed

I am questioning why you made the statement that you were surprised that someone travelled to LNB - that all, keep your feathers on
When an equally reputable company was a couple of miles away rather than the bother end of the country. As you can see, it was fully explained and I acknowledged that. :doh:
