Pull the trailer and boat to a scale and weigh it to get the exact weight. Most trucking companies,gravel yards, junk yards or even a state scale where they check for overweight trucks have scales to do that.

not enough information
to tow anything , there are regulated engine power requirements , braking capacity, electric break away brakes on the trailer, weight on the tow bar, boat width, boat length
All the requirement can be found at the vehicle registry office or main roads department

What is the tow capacity of a 2007 Ford BF Falcon?


check with the makers specifications ( may be on a sticker on the door edge /pillar) or service dealer. Generally the boat would be too heavy for the vehicle as it will cause loss of control and steer the car. Generally the regulation was if the vehicle being towed was heavier than the towing vehicle then it was illegal to tow but with improved braking systems on trailers, increases in engine power there have been some amendments made to the rule. Remember that the transmission and diff is not designed to pullr this weight so the service life will be considerably reduced.

I have an 03 Toyota Sequoia, 4.7L V8, factory installed hitch receiver and wiring. The manual says it has a towing capacity of 6500 lbs GVWR. I have been towing a popup trailer weighing 3000 pounds with no...


I think the tongue weight rating on the stock hitch is 600 lbs, so you are over that. You probably want to level out truck to handle better when towing, so the best way is to get air bag helper that raises the back end.

What is the towing capacity of a 2004 Solara?


Not trying to sound like dodging the question but, If it's not written in your owners manual, your best bet is to call local toyota dealer & ask to be sure. Wouldn't want to guess on that & end up blowing your transmission or engine.

Towing a boat.


I did some quick "googling" because I wanted to see if there was any relevant info for you and it looks like 2,400lbs is your limit .. I found this info quite extensively here

Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon


1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.
