Hi

I am hoping someone can help advise me which 4x4 vehicles would be suitable to tow an Ifor williams 505 trailer?

Thanks :)

I used to tow my IW 505 with a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

you need to check the towing weights - a fairly big 4x4 as ifors are quite heavy + horse tack etc

I don't think you can really beat Landrovers. My dad used to have a Discovery, now he's got a Defender. You'll probably be fine with most 4 x 4's, maybe consider a 4 wheel drive estate car perhaps? What you need to consider is where you will be towing it, what the steepness is like, that sort of thing. If you'll be towing on steep ground and in muddy fields then I would look at a heavier 4 wheel drive, like a Landy. I don't think pick ups are that good on steep ground as they don't have the weight on the back like other 4 x4's have, if that makes sense. x

Best bet is probably a Land Rover Defender 90; they are relatively cheap to maintain & relatively easy to fix/service for even the most amateur mechanics. xx
