IF you have the trailer then definitely getting that towbar is the way to go as youll get more in it.

You can then get a roof box later.

I have both and use both but its nice to leave trailer behind when going on shorter breaks and just use a smaller tent and a roof box....

If your out to buy a trailer and dont mind a drive to collect, then this on on Flea Bay looks a stunner if it stays this low in price

We bought a towbar on eBay and got it locally fitted - in total was only around 120 (that was with double electric for the caravan). Since you already have a trailer seems the sensible option.

...and when you have bought all the possible tent stuff and still want more creature comforts your car is ready for you to buy a van!!
