Correct nose weight & overall trainweight are key figures that somehow don`t make the "importaint" list

I can't say I enjoy towing. I bought a 450kg Freedom Microlite this year and towed it around France. The caravan kills my mpg and restricts the freedom my camper gave me. Not sure how long I will live with it .

When you're tired of camping, you're tired of life :ILU:
