I've always liked cab-forward. Engine access pretty good?
Sounds like they tax anything that touches/wears on the road.
We have tow dollys that carry two wheels and also tow bars that fold away for storage and flat tow (no wheels off the ground). The steering of the towed vehicle is unlocked and always towed by the front.

So good! The whole cab flips forward so you're basically just looking at the engine between two frame rails - though you can also lift up the middle seat for minor maintenance or checks.

Flat towing sounds cool, I believe we're allowed to do that here as well but haven't looked too much into it. You usually see it with small vehicles behind RV's (or campervans, as we call them), and I think the vehicle has to be modified, certified, etc. to be legal here.
