Yeah. I have read some stuff on there. Mostly informative but opinion divided on some points. Towing capacity Vs trailer GVW being one.

...the trailer MAM must not exceed the unladen weight of the towing vehicle...

That was revoked on 19/01/2013 - 4 years ago!

Oh yes, found it. That could come into play when moving empty RIB trailers with smaller cars.
Given that most of our combis are unplated, what's the method for deriving the GVW of a combi.
I read somewhere it's the sum of the tyre ratings.

Tyre load rating totals are used as the MAM where no weight plate exists
