If the A frame does not have provision for brakes, almost certainly the answer is no.

If it is braked, it's still not a simple yes or no, because it depends on how heavily you load the van with other things. You will need to stay within the maximum train weight (I may have the exact name wrong, but it's the total permissible mass including occupant/contents/fuel/etc., towed car, A frame and towbar) and the maximum loading on each of the axles. These limits should be marked on a plate on the van. If my van is anything to go by, there is insufficient info on the V5C alone to work from.

Might be better to use a trailer as some foreign police don't like A frame towing.

I would have thought a 206 was a bit heavy to be dragged about regularly, which is why people often opt for Smarts.

Don't go to Spain unless you want to throw your money away. the Police make a small fortune from unspecting Brits
