Hello

I'm off to Spain in june in my converted truck for a few months and wanted to tow my Discovery behind. I've been looking at A frames and dollies but don't know the laws about towing through France? Just wondering if anyone could let me know if you have to have front wheels off the ground or not? I am pretty sure that in Spain you have to have front wheels off the ground which would mean a dolly? cheers

IMHO I think considering the weight of a Disco a proper braked vehicle trailer would be more appropriate and not bring you to the attention of the Gendarmes. Assuming your 'Truck' IS a truck

Watch out for License implications, a car license will only take you to 8-25 tonnes max train weight, above you will need a C or if you tow a landy a C+E

You are going to need a proper 4 wheel transporter trailer,
The disco, being 4WD will not take kindly to being towed for any length of time, on its own wheels !!
Also, as Loddy points out, makes sure you have the correct licence groups,
We used to run a 7.5 tonner with 2.5 ton of trailer and IIRC also a C+E ? is needed to cover up to 12 ton train weight
