Looks like a fun trip though. I'm surprised you had problems towing it home
with your Disco - which engine does it have? We regularly pull two or three
tonnes with my friend's gas-converted 4.6 V8, but I'd expect the diesel to
handle it better if a little slowly.
I shifted roughly 700kg of VAX stuff in my Citroën CX saloon a couple of years
ago. There wasn't a lot of room for me to sit and drive it. I think most of
the weight was between the Fujitsu Eagles and the grey wall.
