Cheers

Daft question, but are you intending to tow on the road?
Do you know there are legal issues with transporting vehicles with these?

Doesn't the vehicle been towed have to be braked by law?

I'm no expert, but I'm sure there are legal issues with using them. I'm sure someone will be along in a bit with more info.
Owelly was done with a towing dolly and got points and a very large fine
Froggy uses an A frame but has it linked into his handbrake I think.

Ok for emergency use. But anything being towed on a normal basis is classed as a trailer, so if it weighs more than 750kg then it should be braked.

A lot of the motorhome ones also have a braking system on the towed car when the motorhome is braking.

Recovery type frame is as it says just for recovery . Current rules for towing using an a frame are that the towed vehicle if fitted with a braking system must work regardless of weight plus if the towed vehicle has power assisted brakes there needs to be a way of keeping the servo full or rather empty . My frame is an overrun type for towing behind a motorhome with a cable link to the foot pedal to apply the service brake . As thereís no way of proving the efficiency of this DVsa etc it just needs to satisfy the requirements. Itís easily found by searching towing a frame rules .

Owelly. A frame court case.

I was going to get an A-frame for getting my tiger about and to IVA. I then read this and decided to rent a trailer when the time comes.

Just to add, overrun brakes were outlawed in 2014 on trailers with axles over 1m apart, which includes cars on A-frames and dollies. Dollies and A-frames are for recovery of a broken down vehicles (there's a definition of those) to the first safe place....which on a motorway would be to the next exit ONLY or on a narrow lane, to the next wider stretch of road.
