Folks, could someone tell me what the recommended nose weight (or range) is for the P38?
I might be towing my jeep to the West Riding next week (1500kg).
Thanks!

karlos, the Jeep is only 1500kg wet so it should be OK.

Yes, 150kg maximum on the hitch, around 100 will be better, 3,500kgs maximum towed weight. Depending on what you are using, a trailer rated for 2,800 kgs or more MAM will weigh around 800-900 kgs empty, so you'll be looking at about 2,400 kgs overall. Should be no problem at all for the Duchess.

What trailer are you using? Brian James tow best, Indespension bounce all over the place when empty but are OK when loaded and Ifor Williams are somewhere between the two. It was an Ifor Williams CT115 I used to collect your father's (your) Austin Seven but that is only single axle and rated for a load of no more than 1000 kgs.
