Sure your Bug can tow it!

Unfortunately maybe truth when it comes to some "sales." Be safe out there!

Awesome pic Donna. Now if they can only steer. Odd that the door is on the wrong side of the camper, but the tow ratings in Europe are a lot higher then here in North America. Just get 2 Obese people in the car and it will bring the front wheels down.

How funny! My first reaction was the same. With the driver behind the wheel it will be just fine, with a passenger it will be double "just fine"!
The door on the wrong side? That's the wonderful English sense of humour (sic). Not sick!

With scrap lead at $1 a pound and the trunk in front..... Should be no problem to "balance" that load by piling lead as little as $500 worth of lead in the front trunk.

Might be a little hard on the gas mileage and better shocks would be a must but if you give me the bug and that trailer I'll take a stab at making it work.
