Default 'Alf - Half Elf cargo trailer

I've been working on this for about ten years, collecting parts and figuring out how to make it work. I finally got it put together and painted to match my 16V Riley Elf. Turned out pretty damn good. Still got the wiring to clean up and add some interior finishing touches. A complete photo gallery of the build process here.

Wow! That looks amazing!
I'm planning to tow a trailer with my Vauxhall and it's pretty much constructed...but first things first...finishing the tow car is a priority I think
One thing I would like to know...what kind of tow bar did you use and how is mounted on the car?

It's a receiver type hitch made for a standard Mini, with an extended draw bar to make up for the extra length of the Elf. Here's a few pics.
