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.
