Tow Ball Down Weight is the amount of trailer weight that is directly supported by the tow vehicle’s Tow Bar. The general rule of thumb is Tow Ball Down Weight equals approximately 10% of the Aggregate Trailer Mass (the weight of the trailer when not connected to a vehicle). Most Tow Bars have a maximum Down Weight rating and every application is different. If you’re unsure of your weights, check with your local Pedders store.
Most vehicle manufacturers quote Towing Capacity as Braked and Un-braked. This refers to braking systems that are common on heavy trailers such as caravans, boats, horse floats or motorbike & car trailers. Most vehicles are rated to tow more weight when the trailer is fitted with a braking system.
The price to install a Tow Bar can vary depending on the vehicle type, the Tow Bar type and the level of wiring required to connect the trailer lights and brakes to the tow vehicle’s light and brake systems. Pedders stores are trained on Tow Bar installation and can help you to tow safely and confidently.
