Hi I need to be able to tow a trailer for work but my car doesn't have one.
I just wanted to know what I need?
Can I do it my self?
How much will it cost?
Where to get the parts?
Oh my car it a 2002 au forte and is stock apart from wheels and doesn't have factory tow pack.
Thanks for any help :)

well I will only be towing a single axle trailer with rubbish in it, so i don't think it will be that heavy.
