towing

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but here goes...

Does any have a good link to a site about towing law?

I want to find out the answers to the following:

Tow limits.. how do i work that out for my vehicle?

If using an A-frame or similar, do both vehicles incontact with the road need to be insured/taxed/not'd? Obviously all the tyres in contact with the road need to be legal.. but as the towed vehicle effectivly becomes part of the towing vehicle, whats the story?!

Have a look at the thread http://tentenths.com/forum/showthrea...hreadid=40533.

There is also another one in that forum, search on tow***.

You could ask the DVLA as they have been useful for such info in the past. Aparently the boys in blue are cracking down specifically on motorsport vehicles as there is a high percentage that are either overloaded or towing with a vehicle that isnt capable.

Eg. Certain large race box type trailers need a vehicle capable of towing 3000 kgs. Even transit vans would have problems with this. A Landrover discovery would be ok though, just.
