    Hope they don’t change your tow motor to a commercial?
    So laws were if it’s over a certain width/length you have to use a commercial.
    With the van been so wide getting extended mirror is fun.
    now my 110 Hicap pulled a large hobby from Leicester to Birmingham no problems.
    Then hooked it up to a cayenne to take to Spain.
    Once in France you can tow what you want.

    here’s a few tips....
    Make sure you carry receipts as you will get pulled or looked at. Get it well alarmed
    (I only stopped by the channel tunnel at Tesco’s before the police arrived thinking I was making camp)
