The higher rating the better and isnt it ATM that you take into account. GVM is ATM less ball weight.

No - GTM is the ATM less the ball weight. GVM is generally used for vehicles other than trailers and is the equivalent of a trailers ATM.

Do you need some re-assurance from a forum?

I suppose a 2000 kg coupling could be used for a 1600 kg van.

I replaced my 3500kg ALKO with a 2000 KG Hyland without asking anyone else as it seemed simple math to me.
