A-frames is a towing alternative to the Car Dolly. Typically they are used to tow small 4WD’s or cars behind motorhomes.

We recommend that you carry out your own due diligence as to the suitability of your vehicle for having an A-Frame fitted – prior to booking with us.
Our A-frames are not intending for backing. Backing will cause damage to the A-frame. We also recommend that when turning corners or going around a roundabout that you drive to the widest possible circumference (do not take the corners tightly)
Also try to avoid travelling on un-even ground, such as pulling on to grass road sides to pull over for an oncoming vehicle, this can also damage and twist the A-Frame.
Please refer to the A-Frame towing fact sheet 75 on the NZTA website. http://www.nzta.govt.nz/resources/factsheets/75/index.html
