To be fair the trikes are bloody lethal compared to the quads !!

It's dubious as to what you can tow with a trike-I used to have one that could tow well over a tonne without any issues, but it had a 2.1 litre Volvo engine and was taxed and licenced as a car as it weighed over 800kg. If it's licenced/taxed as a motorcycle, you'll find it's got a very restrictive set of dimensions on the trailer.

Probably a moot point anyway as I'd never tow with a trike without a diff. It's an accident waiting to happen.

Towing on private land its would be fine at slow speed but they arn't road legal. If you want something that's road legal and could double up as a second car try looking into a qpod (the 340cc model)
