1988 T25 1.6TD towing capability

Postby pier1 » 03 Sep 2018, 07:36

Hi

I bought a Fiat 500. Weight: 556 kgs. I want to transport it on a small car trailer. Weight 500 kgs.

Can I tow the trailer & car legally with my 1988 Westfalia Joker 1.6TD in the UK?

What is the towing capability of a 1.6 TD Westfalia Joker?

Many thanks

According to the VW owners manual, the maximum permissible weight for a trailer with brakes towed by a Westfalia 1.6TD on gradients upto 12% is 1500kg.
