I think you'll find it's a maximum of 750 Kg for the weight of trailer.

3500kg - 2700kg = 800kg 👍

750kg is the maximum weight of an unbraked trailer of any kind.

Welcome to the Disco Adria Club, what model is that, the Missouri?


I just meant there's now more than one of us on here with that combination.
Would be good to here how you get on with your Adria though.

England 2014 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 SE Tech Auto Loire BlueDiscovery 4

Bought the Disco 5pm on the Tuesday, set off up to Whitby 9am the next day.
Nicer to tow with than my 110 was.
Really need to update the caravan next year to a fixed bed one.

Typical July weather in Whitby...

MAM, GVW, and MTPLM mean exact same for cars and caravans.
If the trailer is more than 750kg MAM, with a post January 1997 licence you're allowed a combined MAM of 3500kg. This is the plated MAM, not kerb weight or MIRO, and not actual weights.

So the D3 at 3230kg GVW means you can only tow a braked trailer with a MAM of 270kg Big Cry
Edit: But the 750 kg rule will apply.

Better start getting ready for the B+E test Cool

A better pic taken the next day in better light. Hard to believe this was less than 3 weeks ago. Much colder now. Washed the caravan at the weekend and gave it a protective layer of Fenwicks Overwintering solution to keep the dirt and algae off until the spring.
