How to work out what weight of caravan / trailer your car can tow

vin plate

The VIN plate will display either 3 or 4 sets of weights, it is these weights that DVSA or the other vehicle authorities use to determine whether your vehicle is towing or being driven within the law. The top figure A is the gross vehicle weight, the Maximum Allowable Mass (MAM) of the vehicle including occupants, fuel and payload. The second figure B is the gross train weight, this is the combined maximum allowable mass of the vehicle and trailer. The third and fourth figures C and D are maximum axle loads front and rear respectively. The manufacturer recommended maximum towing capacity for your vehicle is the gross vehicle weight subtracted from gross train weight. (4200kg less 2505kg = 1695Kg)
