So you could also be in a vehicle (kerbweight which is unladen weight) of 3500kg and still tow a trailer of 750kg giving u a train mam of 4250kg !

It would effectively make it a 750kg trailer-so you couldn't exceed 750kg with it. Without brakes, it couldn't legally go over 750kg on the road anyway.

If there's no weight plate or serial number on it, who knows what it was originally plated at? An old model number means nothing.

Yes. However....


MAM=Maximum Authorised Mass. MAM is NOT kerbweight.At no point does the directgov link you posted refer to kerbweight.

If you're in a vehicle with a kerbweight of 3500kg, it'll have a MAM of over 3500kg unless it has a payload of zero kg. You'd need a class C1 licence to drive it, and C1E licence to tow a trailer with it.

Lol. It's on many websites.

Kerb weight vehicle. Mam of trailer. Ive even copied it from the gov website.

G, your right. If those are the right plate weights and you have got them from Nissan and hallmark as well as on the trailer and it is braked.

Nos your right but the vehicle is not MAM. it's unladen weight / Kerb weight for the vehicle and MAM for the trailer.
