YEH, the car around 900kg,trailer probly no more than 400kg.(guessing)
should just squeze in.
Ive seen some ridiculous tow cars with a car on a trailer even if they say the are legal to tow the weight,you really need to use comon sense here.
And when people load cars on trailers you see them as far up the front of the trailer they can get them and you've got about 400kg on the ball.
This is why I there should be a simple test drivers have to pass occasionally to prove you have the brains to select correct load weight and postition for the car,
A potential runaway train in the drivers hands of a old 4 cyl Camry with an 18ft half cabin in tow,even a ton of soil in a box trailer behind a little jap car.
You often see the week end garden worriors strugling to keep the front wheels on the ground through a round abouts.
