Actually that's a good thought.
Be cheaper too, hire a flatly and take it yourself.

A mate did make a jig that fitted a tow ball and friont wheel of trike was clamped into with straps as well.
That worked well for a 10 mile trip ,no idea if anyone esle did anything like that

Take the prop off then you can tow an auto

I have a frame you put over a tow ball run trike up front wheel drops into rectangular frame then strap rear end of frame up under trike simple to make easy to tow
but you would have to come to wales to get it

Simple to make 2" box section 1'6" to rectangular section 3' behind it D ring thing to attatch to tow hitch crush box section to make D ring fit rectangular section about 2' by 9" then about 3' to back of frame fit another D ring job done
Easier to make than discribe Dai
