    I'm looking for a braked towing dolly that I can use for towing my Prelude.

    Would also love it if someone had one that they could rent to me for a day or two for a few quid.

    A bloke i know used an old caravan chassis as a braked trailer.
    Wonder if you could buy a battered caravan, batter it some more, add some bits to support a car? It does seem there is lots of red tape surrounding all this stuff though.

    Okay, not very helpful. But just a thought!

    Good idea, except a caravan chassis converted to being a trailer, plus the weight of the Prelude would push over the maximum towable weight for the Civic. That's why it has to be a dolly. Plans are to get a cheap, reliable towing car which I will only insure and tax when I actually use it, but that plan's still a little way off, and then would also require me getting a trailer (braked as well), PLUS have space to store the trailer and towing car.

    Your'e right, can see the weight being the issue, pretty sure the EP3 has no towing ability at all so keeping things within tolerance is obviously important.

    Will keep an eye out for something suitable.
