Weight the boat and trailer on a truck scale, then go back without the boat on the trailer and weight it. Sometimes you can find a base weight for the trailer on a manufacturers website.

I have just ordered a new caravan with a ball weight of 175kg. do I need a weight distribution hitch?


A question often ask and much disregarded
although the tow bar weight is within limits
the load distribution bars ( torque bars -stabilizer bars --sway bars etc) not only help distribute the load but act in such a way as to stop the trailer /caravan for developing the sway that tends to make the driver loose control at speed
they also , when properly adjusted, keep the ride height of the towing vehicle level and that improves stability
remember that although the bar weight is 175 kgs that amounts to a load of 525kgs over the rear axle or extra 525 kgs on the rear tires ( mass multiplied by distance from drive axle or rear wheels assuming the distance from the axle/tires to the tow ball is i meter---heavier if the bar is further back from the tires )
to use the distribution bars lifts that weight off the rear axle and places more of the load on the trailer wheels
As a result the car / trailer combination is much safer to operate than without the bars

What is Max towing capacity for 99 petrol mazda bravo b2600. Can you tow 1 tonne without electric brakes?


Depends were you are, where I live any trailer with a ladened weight over 750 kgs requires brakes. Then when you do have brakes you are allowed to tow a trailer up to 1.5 times the weight of the tow vehicle.

Vehicle towing capacity chart


A) Depends on the hitch you have and what it is rated for. Most car hitches (non truck or SUV) have a tounge weight rating of 500 LBS. This is the weight that is put on the actual connection of car and trailer. B) To not kill your transmission, do not exceed a total trailer weight of more than 1/2 the vehicles curb weight. (Dry weight of car full of fuel) Car transmissions and frames were not originally designed for towing, and exceeding 1500 LBS total trailer weight is considered dangerous (can get trailer weave and sway easily) and will cause excessive strain on drive train components. U-Haul has an online guide that will basically tell what type of trailer you can haul and its maximum allowed weight.

A Toyota Tundra can pull the space shuttle but stopping on a down grade is a different story. Towing capacities are base upon stability and pulling and stopping but should never exceed the cars weight. unless electric trailer brakes are used . but again if trailer would jack knife it will push your car into a tree without stopping because weight has overtaken control.

WHAT SIZE trailer can I pull with 2005 Equinox?


A few things that should be mentioned

1) After looking up the manual for a 2005 Chevy Equinox, the absolute maximum weight you can tow is 3500 lbs (with a tongue weight of 350 lbs) but please read on.

2) This number is only obtainable by using a Weight Distributing Hitch, (refereed to as a "Weight-Carrying hitch" in your manual) which requires more hardware and a slightly more complicated set-up.

3) for towing without a weight distributing hitch, your maximum weight is going to be 2000 lbs. (including the occupants in the vehicle. And again, your tongue weight can only be 10-15%

Your vehicle's manual provides excellent information on setting up towing with your vehicle, and I recommend you read over it. If you dont have your manual any more, it can be found on-line see link below. (Section 4 pages 39-45 are relevant to the topic)

http://gmprotectionplanwarranty.com/owners-manual/chevrolet/2005-Chevrolet-Equinox.pdf

The fact that the hitch is a custom build brings up some concern; while I am not doubting the abilities of the Machinist who made it, unless it is certified, not only is their a safety issue, there is also possible legal repercussions, I would highly recommend you consult your local DMV office or your call your state's sheriffs office for more information.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact me!

Happy and Safe Trailering!

As listed in the owners manual.

Weight of the Trailer
How heavy can a trailer safely be?
It depends on how you plan to use your rig. For
example, speed, altitude, road grades, outside
temperature and how much your vehicle is used to
pull a trailer are all important. It can also depend
on any special equipment that you have on
your vehicle, and the amount of tongue weight the
vehicle can carry. See “Weight of the Trailer
Tongue” later in this section for more information.
Maximum trailer weight is calculated assuming
only the driver is in the tow vehicle and it has all
the required trailering equipment. The weight
of additional optional equipment, passengers and
cargo in the tow vehicle must be subtracted
from the maximum trailer weight.
The following charts show how much your trailer
can weigh, based upon your vehicle model
and options.
2WD Extended Cab Axle Ratio Maximum Trailer Weight GCWR*
Automatic Transmission,
2.9 L Engine 3.73 3,100 lbs (1 406 kg) 7,000 lbs (3 175 kg)
Manual Transmission,
2.9L Engine 3.73 2,100 lbs (952 kg) 6,000 lbs (2 721 kg)
4WD Crew Cab Axle Ratio Maximum Trailer Weight GCWR*
Automatic Transmission,
3.7L Engine 3.73 4,000 lbs (1 814 kg) 9,000 lbs (4 082 kg)
*The Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) is the total allowable weight of the completely loaded
vehicle and trailer including any passengers, cargo, equipment and conversions. The GCWR for your
vehicle should not be exceeded.

Pulling a trailer


Depends on the overall trailer weight and the tougue weight. Generally if the trailer weight is less than 6000 lbs and tonque weight does not exceed 700 lbs you should be okay. Consult your owners manual to be certain.
