How does trailer nose weight compare to trailer tongue weight. The brochure notes 150kg for the max trailer nose weight which seems low, but maybe this is not an apples to apples comparison to trailer tongue weight. What am I missing?
They are a little sketchy on the details about what kind of hitch they use. The Aussie brochure says it uses a class 3 type hitch which I can’t imagine is correct. These are not heavy duty and generally can’t tow caravans or horse floats.. most 4wd vehicles will come with a heavy duty class 4 hitch.
I was looking at specs for Land Cruiser in the UK and it seem to have a similar nose weight of 150kg, so maybe not an apples to apples comparison to USA tongue weight. To meet the recommended minimum 10% tongue weight with the noted 3500kg trailer weight, seems like it would have to be at least 350kg tongue weight.
