Other Than Nose Weight


Recommended Posts

Has anyone worked out the other various weights and percentages.

Here are mine


1) % the MTPLM is of the tow cars max permissable tow weight (<101%) = 96%

2) % the MTPLM is of the tow cars kerb weight (<86%) = 83%

3) % the max permissable nose weight is of the caravans actual loaded weight (4 to 7%) = 5%

4) BHP per tonne of the actual outfits train weight (>40) = 48

5) Max torque 2000 rpm = 58mph in 5th gear.


I found this helpful.

I now know i am inside the tolerances.

I have identified the areas to improve on when i next change my tow car.
