TOW BALL MOUNTED ACCESSORIES

CAUTION

Before fitting a tow ball mounted accessory, make sure that it has been approved by the vehicle manufacturer. The use of unsuitable equipment can result in severe damage to the tow ball and the tow bar.

Before fitting an accessory to the tow ball, observe the following guidelines:

  1. The attached accessory must not protrude more than 700 mm from the tow ball.

  2. The centre of gravity of the mounted equipment and load combined should not exceed a distance of 390 mm from the tow ball. The maximum weight at this distance must not exceed 66.8 kg.

NOTES

The forces exerted by the trailer's nose weight and tow ball mounted accessories are different in nature, so a separate limit applies to both.
