    I am just wondering where you will tow a caravan that will be affected by ground clearance reduced by two inches? Stick to the downward loads on the tow-bar as specified by Jaguar (refer to handbook) and adjust as necessary. I have towed cabin cruisers up to 24 foot and not had any problem on uneven launching ramps and that includes the Porthmadog ramp and the Black Rock sands and also the very steep ramp at Pendine Sands. Good luck whichever way you go

    Speed humps on site and the ferry have been mentioned as possible grounding issues, only what I read not experienced.

    Driving a 2014 XF Sportbrake 3.0 Diesel S 25k miles black and a 2016 Mazda MX5 2.0 sportnav, when the wife lets me and I feel like slumming it.

    In the warmer months the Ducati Monster 1200R gets to stretch it's legs.
