156 GTA & 156 Ti

Can a 156 Q4 trailer a 156 ?

So, say you were completely mad about 156s and wanted a 156 Q4 as your daily driver, and had a 156 GTA that you wanted to use as a trackday car, can you trailer the GTA behind the 156 Q4 ?

I know the towing vehicle should be heavier than the trailer+cargo. The GTA would probably not have the seats anymore, and some weight saving, but not a lot.
Spare wheels tires and tools would be carried in the Q4, not again not a whole lot of weight difference ?

From the Crosswagon manual, the towable weight is: 1450 kg
So from that, probably not if you go by the book.

But it probably would.

I'd go with David.....legally, probably not....practically, yes, no problem......depends on how much weight saving done on the GTA, and the weight of the trailer, of course. I'd want the trailer brakes to be OK......

Fine until you're involved in an accident, at which point your insurance company might refuse to pay out on the basis that the car was not being used correctly

I wouldn't...

If you used an A frame with a goon in the towed car its legal.
