Thumbs up 1st tow with C4Picasso VTR + (5sts) 1.6HDI

Just returned from our first outing of the season Lytham, St Annes, Eastham Hall.
Plenty of sunshine, super site not too busy being prior to Bank Holiday.
The car towed like a dream no hitches can't believe it's only 1.6, achieveing as much as 53Mpg solo (over 1000mls), dropping to 30Mpg towing ( 216mls lots of slow moving traffic on motorway.) The Rhyno mover took all the strain particularly getting back in driveway at home. Nearly had a failure with leisure battery - neutral spring clamp came loose on journey up. I remember Rhyno engineer condeming the spring loaded type as unreliable so got replacement bolt on type from Halfords plus a suitable spanner i think it will be a good investment.
Hope everyone else enjoys the Bank Holiday (regardless of the stinking rain)
Rob & Chris in not so sunny Rhyl

Great to hear that you had a good first outing with your new towcar.
