    So, whats wrong with the fast lane?
    Any reason why they can control the speed and allow cars to pass?

    2017 Discovery Td6 HSE Fuji White

    probably an inexperienced caravanner either towing with an inadequate towcar or loading their caravan poorly.

    Having towed our twinaxle for over 6 years, all places (stupidly narrow lanes, french motorways to the med twice) we have never experienced instability.

    Here you are another image and it looks like a disco sport on the hard shoulder and press quoting Land Rover involved with caravan.
    Also blamed south bound drivers for taking photos and rubbernecking for delays!

    A near daily occurrence and school holidays about to start Shocked Shocked

    NOT MY PHOTO!

    to be fair, a DS should have no issues towing a caravan like that, I guess none of us know the original cause of the instability
