Has anybody heard.of Unibrake towing 'A' Frames. They are more expensive than most other 'A' frame manufacturers. If what they tell me is correct they do sound very good, but does anyone have any knowlege of the product and/or the manufacturer. Please help if you can.
Yes, I have just been reading it, must admit it looks good, Only lightweight cars though.
Some interesting ideas, worth exploring further IDC but I am not entirely convinced with the legal statement. I still do not see how you can reverse under control? Will this make it illegal even with the better braking system. I like its lightness, I struggle a bit with my heavy Car-a-Tow one so come 2014 I might be interested if it proves fully legal. However, I still see the Continent, especially Spain as being a problem area.
Perhaps if you do not already have a frame it is worth serious consideration but if you aready have one, I wouldn't be in a hurry to swap. What is the price?
Thanks for your replies, saddletramp,peedee and cabbie, still not sure whether to risk the 'A' Frame or go the relatively safe route of a trailer. Will keep trying to find more information on legality of towing with an 'A' Frame and the makers of this particular 'A' Frame made by Unibrake. Thanks again, you three, keep in touch, happy Motorhoming. Blacklabmeg
And it costs £1850, which includes VAT (I just called him to ask so you know it's the correct price) and includes the fitting to the car , the A Frame and fitting the control/safety unit in the cab of the MH. Well, everything but the tow bar and the car
I couldnt remember all the tech stuff so here's his Website for that:

The legal stuff quoted, has been taken straight from current legislation so is correct and we had no problems towing through France and Spain this year, with the system.
We had a clumpy old 'dead pedal' system before we changed to this and was glad to get shot of the old one and the new one is 'future legal' as well as legal now.
Anyway, give him a call if you want more detail: 01435 830188
