I know this subject has been addressed many times before, but not from this angle. I have a Colt Rodeo which I have rebuilt completely. I know that the maximum towing weight is 1 500kg. (Calculations done from the manufacturer’s plate).
I am going to buy a Jurgens Exclusive, which has a GVM of 1 750kg, which is 250kg over the Colt’s legal towing capacity.
However, I feel that the Colt has enough power to tow the caravan, since it has a 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine.
I contacted Wingate Brake specialists, who can do a vacuum brake conversion/modification to the Colt and the caravan as a unit, which (according to the law) will allow the Colt to tow up to 3 200kg legally.
What is your take on this?
