Jan I luv the towing ability. Great to use 5th gear 80% of the time in Transvaal. I use about 115kg but will not tow without Tando or any other anti sway device. I get sway above 100 and will only go over 100 when I have to like when I had a diesel leak and had to get to a town asap.That day I towed at 120 with less sway than I expected.

Hello Danie
here i am again
what is your Td4 :
Tare
Gvm
Gcm
I like to see if I can manage to tow jurgens classique, early model which states on paper Tare 980 kg and Gvm 1250 kg, we know that jurgens are rubbish supplying correct data so I am banking on van Gvm of 1500 kg
thanks in advance
jan

I don't have the info with me but the tare is 1550kg. LR say you can tow 2000kg and the combined weight is 4000kg.

So no problem with abilty from a legal point of view.

My Scenic is the same size and full height as the Classique and at times my van goes up to 1325kg which is just above the GVM of the van.

Also it has the same axle and length.
