According to my brochure the kerb weight of a CRDi XE 2WD manual transmission is 1748 Kg with a gross vehicle weight of 2170 Kg and a max towing weight (trailer with brakes) of 1600 Kg. So 85% of the kerb weight is 1486 Kg.

Woody, look on your V5 registration document, you will see registration weight, (in my case, 1760kg), mass in service, (also 1760kg) and technical permissible maximum towable mass of the trailer, (in my case, braked 1600kg and unbraked, 750kg).


Hope this helps, Mike
