The new rules? Those the licence changes? Surely they only affect if you get your licence after a certain date?
But I thought the recent discussion on here had concluded that:
You can't tow a car + trailer plate which is more than your licence allows.
You can't tow a car + actual trailer weight which is more than your licence allows.
So provided you are staying unbraked even with the most recent licences you can tow car+trailer = 3.5T. Max unbraked is 750kg which means the car weight will be fine up to 2.75T which is pretty beefy...
