Hi

Apologies if has been asked before. I have searched all over and can't find the MPTLM weight.

Max.permissible mass 1930

Mass in service 1526

Anyone help please?

Much appreciated.

Thanks

The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right or pleasantly surprised.

Look at the plate probably at the bottom of the drivers B post, that will give you the maximum train weight.

1526 kg = kerb weight
1930kg = GVW
3130kg = GTW
GTW - GVW = 1200 which is usually the max towing capacity

CC recommends that for newbies the 85% of kerb would be about 1300 for a caravan MTPLM but as the max towing is likely to be 1200 then a caravan with a 1200 limit is better

1930 + 1200 = 3130 which is under the max 3500 limit for B only licence towing

Post 1997 licence holder?

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

Hi how can the Caravan Club rate this as the best tow car of the year, when it has such a low towing limit .

When was it rated best towcar?   Reviews said go for the 1.6 over the 1.5 if you plan on towing. I think thats 1800kg max?

Although i dont think the kerbweight is anywhere near that.

VW and their variants seem to win. VW Jetta, Skoda Superb, Seat Leon.
