Yes it should be linked to the towing vehicle nose weight capacity aswell, but in my experience most people have insufficient nose wight, which increases the chance of snaking and instability. 50kg should be regarded as the absolute minimum. I normally aim to have 100kg - 150kg behind my Discovery.
