We have a swift 130bhp multijet looking at getting a corsa 1.4 or something like that weight around
1000/1100kg does any one tow something around that weight and does the MH handle it ok
Thanks

Corsa 1.4 might be a bit heavy for a 130bhp, is this A frame or Trailer, C1 is about 850kg.

We have a 130bhp multisite and our thoughts are you will struggle on hills, we were so disappointed with ours we have just had it remapped.

Going back to towing a car, surely the motorhome isn`t too big to use as a drive around but if you feel that it is, why would you want the expense of buying the car and the tow bar, plus the A frame or trailer hiring a car when needed is so much cheaper plus when you are finished with it you haven`t got the hassle of towing it or storing it at home.

I am Watching this space. I just signed for one (2300 mulitjet, 130 BHP) and it comes to us early May!

But Hell! I went to Spain for years pulling a 1.5tonne car on a Trailer. with an R-V which weighed in at 8.25Tonnes. and was only rated at 180bhp!!! SO??

The Winnebago in the avatar, is 22,000lbs, and has just been 3 times over the great divide up to 12.000ft!

Mazda Mk2 Mx5 is this the best looking, most reliable British looking (though built abroad) small open top sports car.?

How about a Reliant Regal? all you need would be a wheel clamp for the front wheel, it wouldn't be classed as a towed car but a trailer If the police could stop laughing when they stopped you They only weigh 750 kg anyway, so wouldn't slow you on hills but might be classed as a distraction to other road users.
