Not bad with lighter trailers- sub 1.5t. But the clutch does not seem up to heavier stuff, I base this on one I drove for 3 days when I did my trailer test, it was a new truck but clutch tended to stink with trailer manouvers- I have never experienced this with my Defender so can't be poor clutch control. They are also quite high geared which probably doesn't help. Nice truck to drive though.

A mate of mine runs one with a 8ft IW tipper trailer and tracked TW150, swears by it, Updated to newer models as well for more than 15 years. Another mate did same and had nothing but bother(especially clutches!)

I wouldn't touch them.
