I have purchased a Swift 530es and am looking at the figures for towing with my Zafiradiesel and would appreciate your thoughts on the following;
Car Vauxhall Zarifra 1.9 DT 120 Break horse, Kerbweight according to the handbookis 1660kg. Towing cap of the car is 1300kg.
Swift Challenger 530se, MRO 1167kg, MTPLM 1440 declared.
Looking a tthe weights and without going into too much detail, I can tow the van lightlyloaded to stay within the 1300kg towing cap for the car and 85% recommended guidelines and load the car up with the heavier items as long as I don't exceed the max gross train weight.
Is this common practice or should I be looking at changing my car?
Are there any others out there that tow with a similar set up and what are your experiences?
Many thanks in advance,
