Definitely you Clive but the unfortunate thing is that Iím not sure if the original posting member has been back but certainly hasnít replied. Hope he hasnít taken offence at our advice.

Hope not, I must admit as an SE4x4R responder, I had never given it thought about the whole tax/insurance part of towing. Mind you, we are only asked to move road vehicles, which by default should be, but worth bearing in mind. Especially as I will need to put an MOT on my one before I sell it.

Original poster has not been back but for future reference, transfer box neutral saves drag but also means rear mainshaft bearing will run dry after a while, so would not recommend towing for more than 50 miles without putting transfer box into gear for a couple of miles to re lube the rear mainshaft, if say towing on a dolly (front wheels off the ground) for many miles I would recommend unbolting the prop and securing it out of the way, you cannot remove it without oil loss on to the road, Rick

Don't forget, you may need to take a test to tow a trailer, unless you passed your test decades ago, I passed my test via MT during National service
