    Using this system, AA vehicles will now have to carry two multi-fit wheels instead of one. Add to that all the hub adaptors for various vehicles. AA vans are already right on the weight limit with the fold away towing dolly so something must be removed from the van to compensate for this extra weight. I believe the Patrols are being asked to sacrifice their own spare wheel. Instead of messing about with these hub things, the AA should invest in recovery trucks capable of moving 4×4’s and electric vehicles and stop messing about with this Meccano contraption. These are an accident waiting to happen.
