    No expert, but I would have thought the wider the wheels the more stable it would be.

    i sold my vectra b few year ago the bloke turned up and took a a frame out of his boot put it all together and hooked it up.
    started to talk to him about it and he said he's picked up cars all over the country using it and never had a single problem.
    was a great piece of kit and he kept it in the boot of his estate.
    has to be much better than a dolly as you dont have to tow a empty a frame.

    My biggest concern with an a frame is the vehicle behind starting to sway uncontrollably behind or does it not work like that?

    it wont sway because all 4 we=heels are still in contact with the road. the one i hav also has a attachment so that when the tow car brakes the towed also brakes, meaning it acts like a braked trailer. ( iv happily towed at 70 80 on a motorway with no problems0 wouldnt catch me at over 50 with a dolly may as well use a rope n say ya pairs)
