There is a storage locker on the rear which you would loose access to if a towbar is fitted, unless you got a detachable ball type.   I am sure I have seen Legends with trailers though so must be possible.
You will have to watch the weight of the scooter as the rear body overhang of the Legend is quite long, maybe one of those 2 wheeled dedicated trailers would be better on the rear suspension of the van.
Good choice of van by the way. Many consider this to be the best AutoSleeper ever made.

Thanks for prompt post, roli. We had a van on a front wheel drive Peugot, didn't want to go down the road of 'towing' and thought a rear wheel drive would accommodate this. Wonder if AirRide would help. The Legend is a lovely van!

Airides or similar will almost certainly help, and also help stability in wind.

We found the airides helped in raising the body shell when the rear tyres were replaced. An extra 1 bar allowed the tyre fitters to remove the wheel instead of having to struggle and mess about with extra jacks
