Well, I can only guess. It's around 20 opties and zoom's weighing around 50kg each incl covers and rigs and foils. Thats 1000kg. It's two 4,80 Ribcraft's with motor, 800kg maybe. So total load around 1800kg. The trailer is s double axle. I know that the VW van towing (I have the same car) can't tow more than 2500kg gross trailer weight so have to assume it isn't more than that.

That transporter is way over wieght, look at the back wheels. I run one on a daily basis commercialy and use it for towing, and no way would I fancy pulling that load that distance.

That is indeed a very nice rig, but is that trailer not terribly unbalanced with those axles so far forward?
