The Gross combination mass is 1000kg greater than the Tare mass. Manufacturers spec is max towing cap 500kg without overrun brakes.
If you take four people add a tank of fuel and then add a trailer behind you are within legal spec by about 100kg's.
A work mate of mine tows a town & country trailer fully loaded with 4 adults in the vehicle on a regular trip. From the horses mouth, if you are happy to take your time its fine, but dont expect a ball of fire as the fire went out last night and now the coffee's cold.
