Re: What do you use for transport?
Because we need a 4x4 to get down a very muddy track to our field, I never had the option of having a lorry as it would have been sitting doing nothing most of the time.
I don't have a trailer anymore as none of ours go anywhere now, but back in the day we had an Ifor Williams 505 which I towed with a Landrover Disco. Never had any problems with it with 2 horses in, and as Richard says above, you hardly know there's a trailer there.
And also, as Richard says, I've seen lorries being towed out of muddy show grounds and fields with a tractor, while we managed on our own - just engage low ratio and you're away.
But I'm afraid I know nothing about the Freelander, sorry, but I presume the engine size and bhp are less than the Disco so you'd have less power there.
And I've read some quite disturbing reports about safety in some of the smaller side loading van type lorries, so if you do go down that route make sure you investigate them really well - very thin plyboard partitions can be dangerous.
Good luck !!
