I use a landrover defender, great for pulling and generally messing about in but hurts the back on long motorway journeys.

Try some mud rails on the seat bases gives you more leg room.

General rule of the caravan clubs is no more than 75-80% of the towing vehicle. Otherwise tale wagging the dog senario! lol

Well judging by the trailers .. these must have been taken at least a couple of years apart, now ... there were no teuchter alerts in force in the time, that I was aware of and I'd have known if your presence was near, because my bottles of whisky would have started rattling by them selves on the drinks counter

Yeah, use a Defender if you want to blend in.
Or rather if you want the car to blend in..........leave it within 200 miles of salt water and it will start blending in of it's own accord. Will blend in so fast that you might not have anything left to tow your boat back with.

My Golf launches the SR4 no problem. Tows it over 500 miles without bother.
Jeeps are great as is anything from Japan.
Discos last a few seconds longer than Defenders........and only if they haven't left the showroom. Most are grenaded before the new owner gets the keys anyway so shouldn't pose a problem for you.
I had two Defender snowploughs up on the kerb in Twickenham a few weeks back with their bonnets up. OBVIOUSLY I stopped in the XJ6 to ponder upon their woes.
One had front suspension collapsed and the other that came to help had it's transfer case DNF.
Relax........Richmond Borough Council had another recovery vehicle en route......not to fix them, but to take over their respective duties.
