You know what, don't even notice the Portafold behind, even on hills!

Well all you 4 wheel towers, I tow mine with a Honda Goldwing TRIKE. Yes an 1832cc motorcycle, and trust me it hauls it just fine. Get a few strage looks from time to time, but it is eye catching, even at the bike rallies.

Not a classic car in sight at our house I'm afraid, I sold my 1969 Spitfire last year, after owning her for thirty years...it was a very sad day.

So, I tow Matilda with our 1990 V dub diesel T4, which is brilliant I have to say and Matilda not only sleeps my son, but it houses our musical instruments when we're playing gigs.....she has been know to accommodate as a 'sherry shed' on the odd occasion as well..lol

I have a Harley trike, but can't tow Matilda with it, she's far too heavy.

"Polly" our portafold bounces along nicely behind a Minor 1000 but also adds an extra room to our T25 Volkswagen. We really bought her to pull with a 1955 Cowley but that is a long way off pulling itself along at the moment.....

We are now towing with our 1953 Morris Six 21hp. It's the nearest we'll ever get to owning an American car. Legend has it that Mr Issigonis, the car's designer, cribbed its shape from the 1942 Pontiac Clipper.

Well to be "different" I tow mine with a Honda Goldwing Motor Trike, 2003 model 1832cc. If I knew how I would put a picture on to let you see her. Any guidance on how this is done?? Ta
