    Default Towing Question

    Hi peeps

    I've just bought myself a Trailer Tent off fleabay, but I can't get a towbar fitted until next Friday. I want to go and pick this up on Saturday and a mate has offered to go and get it for me in his Corsa. Will a Corsa be up to the job towing this? It's a Corsa B 1.5 TD

    Thanks in Advance
    Alex

    Depends on the weights Alex - you need to find out what weight the tent is and what the Corsa is able to tow (should be in the specs/manual). I have a feeling the Corsa may not be up to it.

    Nice tent BTW!

    Can't find the towing specs for a Corsa B 1.5TD but the later 1.3CDTi versions can tow 450Kg unbraked and 1000Kg braked
