Provided the MAM of Trailer + Towing Vehicle does not exceed 3.5 tonnes (that's MAM, not weight!)

OK so if Daves 306 weighs about 1200kg, he can tow a trailer with a MAM of 1200.... a small single axle box trailer is about that.

I don't follow. MAM = max authoised mass. Is that not the same as gross/all-up weight?

No, it is the maximum permitted. For example, my rib trailer has about 600kg's of rib on it, about 200kgs of trailer, 900kgs all up weight, however the mam of the trailer is 1300kgs. The MAM is basically the weight of the car + maximum load, or the trailer + maximum load.

One of my Boat storage customers has a small van trailer, it's ideal for what you do! He wants to sell it and I don't think he wants more than 300 or so for it.

if you are interested I'll give you his number
