* With this vehicle configuration it will be necessary to reduce the payload carried inside the van when towing to ensure that the MTPLM and maximum axle loads are not exceeded
*** Requires chassis upgrade to 3650kg on 476 & 486
# Please note that the additional weight of the tow bar and trailer nose weight increases the rear axle loading of the motorhome so care should be taken that the rear axle load is not exceeded when towing. To ensure adequate road holding, the load on the front axle, under all conditions, must not be less than 40% or more than 70% of the total weight. Care must be taken when distributing loads. Please see the Technical Handbook for permissible axle loads, the loadings and weights stated are maximums and must not be exceeded under any circumstances.
