    Easily done with Octavia and there is a 4x4 option Octavia is just under 2000 GVW if memory serves right so using that same Derby trailer plated at 1500 it would leave a max trailer load of 825kg

    Yes you could tow one horse ok but on your current B licence the trailer would need to be plated at no more than 1165kg MAM The Bateson Derby trailer is 675 empty and can be down plated to 1165 but that would leave a max trailer load of 490kg so how heavy is your horse?

    I need the GVW weight of the Audi to answer your query - Max authorised mass on the V5 doc or the top of the 4 weights listed on the weight plate usually hidden in a door frame or under the bonnet It is very likely that you will need to look for a lighter trailer such as a IW 401/3 or Bateson...

    950 empty with 1900 MAM and tow limit of 1500 means you can load a max of 550 into the trailer but under B+E rules

    Welcome to HHO Towing Clinic

    I mean either with a B+E licence or as a learner under supervision
  12. ROG

    Welcome to HHO Towing Clinic

    I assume that will mean it is 950 empty and max MAM of 1900 It will need down plating by Bahill but I think they are no longer trading so that is a no go - unless your car has a GVW of 1600 or less and that is highly unlikely! Options - drive under B+E rules or get another trailer where the...

    I did wonder about the plates but that now cleared up It is easier with a B+E licence as the rules are much easier Do not exceed the MAM of the trailer Do not exceed the max tow limit of the vehicle

    Welcome to HHO Towing Clinic

    From the internet I get that the trailer is 800kg empty and from your plate it is 2300kg MAM Where did you get the plates from as you said you attached them ? You will need a vehicle that can tow at least 1300kg There are hundreds of vehicles that have at least that tow weight

    IW are correct as some manufacturers have only specified thier trailers for certain MAM weights such as multiples of 100 whereas Bateson are able to do any weight I have just come off the phone with IW and 1400 is the minimum that trailer can be down plated to unfortunately and with that info...
