How much can I tow?


The vehicle must be suitably equipped for towing the type and weight of trailer or caravan. This includes a suitably rated towbar and any other equipment or vehicle modifications specified by the vehicle manufacturer as mandatory eg. Transmission Oil Cooler or Weight Distribution Hitch.

National Towing Regulations require that the maximum towing capacity and maximum towball weight specified by the vehicle manufacturer must not be exceeded. If the vehicle is fitted with a lower rated towbar then this lower limit would apply

Vehicle Manufacturer recommendations can be obtained from the vehicle owners manual or by contacting them directly.

All ‘BTA Towing Equipment’ towbars have a compliance plate detailing their rating in accordance with Australian Design Rules & Standards.
