Took a look under me car. The towing bracket looks like it was nicked from the Forth Bridge . . . a great clodding chunk of stuff. I was expecting a neat bracket or two with holes in `em for lightness . . . looks like Brunel had a hand in this!

Buy a gauge and check the weight till you become familiar with your set up. Also just give it a check from time to time as you accumulate belongings. You will be surprised at how the weight can creep up.
