i brought a new abbey 415GTS VOGUE in 2004 and have had many happy holidays in it plenty of room but now the kids are getting older they do not want to sleep in bunks or in thwe awning in the winter so we were looking at buying a 2007 spectrum 545 with the two single beds I tow with a Ssangyoung Rexton 270 (some people might ask what !!! but its a great tow car 3500 kg) we asked the dealer whats it like towing a twin axelcaravan some 26ft long he said no problems but i thought i would take the plunge and join the forum and ask the question

any replies would be handy.

Hi Stuart

Have heard of a rexton, land rover hired us one when our discovery 3 failed with our sterling elite whilst in Cornwall great car! As for towing the tourer `I have not had much experience (my husband normally drives) but on the odd occasion when I have I found it easier than the single aixle we had. and the extra room is great!
