All vehicles should have a plate similar to the one show below. It will be located in one of three places.

Most common is in the door shut area on either side of the vehicle, some under the bonnet and some on the boot floor under the carpet.

Towing Capacity Tag

It has 4 lines of numbers:

2505kg – Gross vehicle weight, the Maximum Allowable Mass (MAM) of the vehicle including occupants, fuel and payload.

4200kg – Gross train weight, the combined maximum allowable mass of the vehicle and trailer.

1250kg & 1300kg – Maximum axle loads front and rear respectively.

The manufacturer’s recommended maximum towing capacity for your vehicle is the gross vehicle weight subtracted from gross train weight.

The vehicle identification plate detailed in the above picture has a towing capacity of 1695kg.

4200kg – 2505kg = 1695kg
