|Your not much better off with a truck! Although a multi purpose vehicle....like an l200 is exempt from o-licencing also.|
And there is no legal correlation between the weight of the tow vehicle and the trailer.
And....if you manage to get all the above the right they will most probably try to do you for ball hitch and axel loadings
Landrover 90, discovery or the new isuzu pickup with uprated tow kit is what you want. Anything else and you might swell keep your van.
I used to tow a kx71-3 around behind my navara d40 and tbh it wasn't safe, it felt very heavy. And that would of been pushing 3.5t with buckets etc.
navara is 2700kg rated and train weight calc is about 1890kg load on a normal mini digger trailer
moved a kx71-3 on a 900kg trailer so 4100kg pulled it ok but wouldn't have like to have stopped in a hurry luckily was only round the factory site, we use ramps and our 7.5 ton tipper but hoping to find better solution be it iveco double cab and trailer batons do a specialist light weight trailer allowing 2920kg load
so ranger, landcruiser, land rover, iveco etc 3.5 ton limit or maybe a plant body 7.5 ton
a 3.5 ton tipper is a hand vehicle to have in your fleet if you can
