In general micras have a fairly good rep for towing,check your towing limits in the hand book but to give you an idea i tow a 750kg dandy 6 with a 09 1200 punto which has a towing limit of 900kg braked,of the top of my head so long as your unit is braked i would have thought no problem.

Now what sort of colour of Dandy would I be expecting Paddy to be towing!
No one has said but the Dandy will have a maximum loaded weight of 500Kg or 10cwts as originally expressed (508Kg)

How are you getting on with the brakes as it's on old fashioned rod brakes?
A secondary coupling is a good idea on rod braked trailers as brakeaway cables are no use.

On ours there is a number on the A Frame, I think it's the same with the older Dandy's too ...... that's if you can find it depending on if the frames been painted.
