How Heavy?

This maybe a silly question but.....

Thinking of changing my car and new car will tow 2000kg max trailer weight. Any ideas on approx weight of Avon 5.6, 90hp honda + trailer in total?

Also if I upgrade to a larger rib, then what is the maximum size boat / engine combination that I could approx tow?

Thanks

Stuart

2000kg is quite alot - what car is it?

A 5.6m with a 90 hp should be no more than 1000kg on its trailer.

Never trust a teenage quantity surveyor! I would think your bote wouldn't be more than 999kg.

you'd get a 7.5 with a big outboard in under the 200kg limit.

So that'll be the fastest 7.5m around....At 200kg .

My 5.5 with 90 Merc 4 fully laden with full tank is about 800kg's I recon.

It's obviously a Falcon! Advanced laminating techniques.

It *maybe* the new Toyota RAV4 T-180, awaiting test drive.

It seems that 2000kgs is a pretty big rib / engine combination then!

Has the new rav4 got a high/low range box? The old one didn't. (refer you to the 'freelander as a tow vehicle thread' just in case...)
