I will put my Freelander 2 up against any other 4x4 towing a Ribcraft 585 full of camping gear plus SIB and engine up a very wet and slippery track,
Even I was surprised having had many Landrover s and with 25 years offroad driving experience

When I had my Freelander 2 I once towed a big Nissan 4x4 with a broken clutch and a horse box with a pair of nags in it up a hill, through a town to a car park - even the rossa was impressed. Would have been a great car if it had been a little more reliable,
