How does it tow?

Go! Camp & Drive - - Caravan Test -

We towed the Lion’s Cub with a Volk­swa­gen Amarok V6 (to­tally OTT, we know). Thanks to the Cub’s low mass it doesn’t re­quire over­run brakes, and with its low pro­file it barely feels like it’s on the tow bar, even dur­ing windy con­di­tions. You only no­tice the weight once you brake, but it doesn’t feel like a heavy trailer push­ing against your ve­hi­cle – it’s more like 15 bags of ce­ment on the back of a bakkie. The trailer per­forms well on high­ways, and it’s only when you hit a pot­hole at high speed that the Cub bucks slightly. You have to take ex­tra care on dirt roads though be­cause the Cub is prone to fish­tail­ing when you go round a bend too fast.
