As a lot of new dandy owners will be new to towing i thought i would post the speed limits while towing

30mph limit applies on all roads with street lighting unless signs show otherwise.
50mph applies on single carriageways unless signs show otherwise.
60mph applies on dual carriageways and motorways.

It should be remembered that you must not travel in the right-hand lane of a motorway, with three lanes or more, if you are driving a vehicle drawing a trailer.

be sure to keep an eye on your speed as the dandy is so easy to tow you forget it's there and go faster than you are (ahem) supposed to lol

Good thread Mike, also a lot of people don't realise that trailer tyres fall under the same laws as vehicle tyres.



Regards the motorway speed limit, I can get above 60mph without the Dandy. lol!
