Disco Sport Tow Bar Nose Weight

Post by Dicky1 » Sun Jun 28, 2020 4:40 pm

Hi All
Could any one clarify what the limits are on a Disco Sport nose weight.
Some state 100kg others claim 150kg I imagine its down to 5 or 7 seat versions.
I want to tow a caravan with 100kg nose weight and put 2 bikes on the tow bar also about another 30kg
My current Freelander takes this with ease.
Any comments welcome Thank you

I believe it is in the owner manual:

Their web data says 100 kg which is what I recall from when we towed with ours. Valid for 5 and 7 seater versions
MB GLC 250d.
Gone: 2 x DS TD4. Both rejected - B pillar ticking.
Evoque TD4. Increasing problems.

Thanks
There is so much confusion over nose weights, I had a witter detachable fitted which claimed to be 150kg but on the detachable hook which went into the bar it said 125kg printed on it and I am sure it was bending and never felt safe.
I worked in the insurance industry working for the Farmers insurance company who pay out 98% of claims and I reed the small print so it needs to be right

I am looking to change my Freelander but cant find anything as good (I would go bigger but the wife wont drive anything bigger) and need a decent nose weight 140 + because of caravan and bikes on the towbar.
