Towing with a disco

How do you find the Disco for towing Tim? I may have been spoilt with the Touareg because in the TD5 I am really finding it disconserting even at 60mph if you even attempt to go over 60 then it gets quite hairy with the back end rocking about. In the Touraeg I hardly even notived the trailer was there

With the same trailer/setup? That sounds very od. Before I got this Disco I had another for a couple of years and towed lots of different things with that and only ever had trouble when the trailer/load wasn't set up right. Perhaps try moving the axle back a little to make it more stable.

You appear to have parked on a very steep hill (and your camera lens could do with a wipe as well!)
