Trailer Hitch Type Label

The towing weight and tongue weight specifications on the trailer hitch type label are the inspection values for the trailer hitch. The approved data for each vehicle is found under the towing weight and tongue weight specifications for the trailer hitch. The vehicle-specific values are listed
in this towing guide,
in the vehicle documentation,
in the applicable owner's manual.
listed.
The trailer hitch increases the vehicle curb weight so the load must be reduced to account for it.
   

Combined Weight

The combined weight is a combination of the actual towing vehicle weight and the actual towing weight. The permitted combined weight for the vehicle or the trailer must not be exceeded. If the full permitted towing weight will be used, the weight of the vehicle may need to be reduced accordingly.
   

Trip Recorder

In many European countries, installing and using a trip recorder is mandatory in vehicles (including passenger vehicles) that are used to transport goods commercially and whose permitted combined weight including trailer or semitrailer exceeds 3.5 tons. It does not matter if both the towing vehicle and the trailer or only one of the two is used for commercial transport of goods.
   
Tongue Weight Specifications
The tongue weight specifications on the trailer hitch type label are inspection values and only valid for the hitch. The permitted tongue weight for the vehicle may be less and it must not be exceeded. These specifications can be found:
in the vehicle registration,
in the vehicle owner's manual and
in this guide.
   

Legal Requirements

Follow all country-specific legal requirements when towing a trailer.
