    aim for a tad lighter if i can (without compromising stability)..
    Good luck with it all, hope everything works out.

    Great you know what is going on and will be able to sort it, the real worry is those that dont look into it.

    Are the rear seats reasonably easy to remove?

    Five people, good chance you will be over/almost over as well.

    Even 7 seater, with rear seats removed, two people, bit of gear, still very close to being illegal.

    The test vehicle used was empty, bog standard, no accessaries.

    I can see some buyers are going to get caught out.
    Yes,the salesman will say, it can tow up to 3.5T....
    All valid points Paul but geez, 7 people and a big van, you'd have to be bloody keen on a trip to put up with that!

    PS, It would have been good if he did the axle loading with the factory hitch to see to what degree the extended hitch had adverse effect.
