Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Towing weight Re: Trailer weight


Many thanks to all for these contributions. I discover that car manufacturers quote 2 towing weights – braked and unbraked, though sometimes you have to dig for the latter. For example, the Ford Focus brochure only seems to give a maximum towable mass (700 to 1500 kgs, depending on the model) whereas the Toyota Auris gives braked (1000-1500, depending on model) and unbraked (450 kgs) figures. The Skoda Octavia, which I have chosen, has an unbraked towing capacity of 650 kgs.
