Hi fellow members, Google isn't my friend at the moment. We have found the family van now just need to trade one of our 80's in so we can pull it legally. I would be interested in some response as to what the above can tow. The van in Q ATM is 3200kg. Also like the 80 changing tow capacity in 96 did the ute do the same.
Thanks.

The 3500kg rating of the towbar doesnt count if the vehicle is only rated to 2500kgs

Our 80 has a Kaymar larger wheels brakes and suspension but it dosnt change the compliance plate.
Just trade our other one in on a 96 ute problem solvered.
HTH did toyota say you could tow up to 3500kg with the genuine fitted. My husband swore black and blue we could tow up to what is rated on the kaymar tow bar. I still have not convinced him the insurance company wont like us. I think he has agreed to shut me up.

Redbook is the easiest way to research specs for vehicles

The legal description of towing capacity is

The vehicle may tow up to the legal capacity of the vehicle or the attached towbars capacity

WHICHEVER IS THE LESSER

Not word for word with the rule but thats what it says..

So an 80'ser with a 3500kg towbar and a manufacturers rating of 2500kg CAN ONLY TOW 2500kg.

No ifs or buts thats it

Thanks all. Have decided 96+ ute will do the job. Just got to decide petrol or diesel.
Cheers.
