I want to buy a catering trailer

 

 its at preloved.co.uk/adverts/show/107823442/catering-vehicle-14-x-7ft-with-style.html

 

What I need to know is will my car be able to handle it.

I have a 2 litre diesel Mondeo estate titanium model

Not sure if you need any other data (sorry I'm not very knowledgeable about cars)

 

Thanks

It all depends on the weight of the trailer, the mondy could probably manage it, but after a while you'd end up pulling the guts out of it, i'd suggest something like a tranny van, it's got the weight and torque to pull it, plus the added advantage of being able to carry all the supplies you should need

Thanks for the reply.
I feared that might be the case.
I don't really want to have two great big lumps out in the front drive ( van and trailer)
So I might instead look at a catering van instead of a trailer

Cheers
