Kerbweight of a Freelander 1.8 is about 1457kg, if you are towing a caravan you could theoretically tow a van up to that weight fully laden although the 85% rule suggests it should not weigh more than 1238kg.

Out of interest, is the 5 door version somewhat heavier than the 3 door version? I tried to find figures before but gave up.

Richm,

3-door is slightly lighter than 5 door - kerbweight is 1427kg, 85% rule is thus 1212kg.

Good site for kerbweights is:

Extract from hand book.

Towing weights
Max trailer weight
Petrol models............................................ ........ 2000 kg ............................4410 lb
Diesel models............................................ ........ 2000 kg ............................4410 lb
Max nose weight*
Petrol models............................................ ........ 140 kg ..............................310 lb
Diesel models............................................ ........ 140 kg ..............................310 lb
Gross train weight
(maximum weight of vehicle plus trailer)
Petrol models............................................ ........ 3760 kg ............................8290 lb
Diesel models............................................ ........ 3850 kg ............................8490 lb
Max roof rack load ................................................ 75 kg ................................165 lb
NOTE:
If the trailer weight exceeds 1800 kg, the vehicle payload
must be restricted (ie. to less than the Gross Vehicle Weight) to
ensure the loaded combination is within the Gross Train Weight
limit.
* To improve stability, it is recommended that you adjust the nose
weight to the maximum limit, when loading to the maximum trailer

weight (also see note above).
