Morning All,

We are having a tow bar fitted to our Auto-Sleeper Boadway in a couple of weeks & will be towing my wifes peugeot 107, I was wondering if anyone can tell me what is the speed limits for towing, motorways/A & b roads? We bought the van as new weighing 3500 & have had it uplated to 3700.

Cheers

Sean

50 on Single carriageways, 60 on dual or motorways, unless lower limit is indicated. Not allowed in outer lane in 3 or more lane roads.

Hi Sean

What Peter said, plus from my experience you may as well set the cruise control and stick with the lorries. Far less hassle and angst, and you get there just the same.

We are considering towing a small car with our Broadway via an A frame.
The reference to the original weight of 3500 being updated to 3700 - being a bit of a learner still what does this mean/involve? confused3

Don't forget you are towing before you try reversing, you could hang a notice somewhere to remind you until you get used to driving with it behind.

If you need extra payload and your van already has the capacity, it's a paper exercise where you pay an engineering firm (SV Tech or JRC) to provide you with certification and a new vehicle weight plate. You send the proof off to DVLA and they issue a new V5 with the higher weights on.

Some vans may need suspension and wheel upgrades to gain the higher weights.
