Towing limits
Volkswagen Transporter

Overview of the towing limits and the '85% recommended towing weights' within a model range. In general, the caravan should not exceed 85% of the kerbweight of the car (if allowed). Of course, 50 kg more or less does not matter too much and not the difference between absolutely safe driving and dangerous driving!

Towing weights in general:
