Just out of interest, the plate on a Scenic II, which Im quoting from memory as I have sold it for the following reasons, says I could tow a braked trailer up to 1300kg,however two things, renault quote these figures on a driver no load and virtually an empty tank, as soon as you put a bag of say potatoes in it the limit goes down to 1000kg, this made me illegal with my new caravan.If I remember right the total weight of the car and trailer wasnt to exceed something like 2985 kg, on weighing the car with the rear seats removed 1/4 tank of diesel and no one in it it weighted 1695kg add that to the Caravan means I may have been in trouble.The official figures from Renault as I still have the corrospondance from them are GVW 1950kg, Kerb Weight 1370kg, Max (driver only) towing weight 1300kg, Max (driver only) unbraked 650kg, The figures in the last paragraph are quoted verbatim from the letter I recieved but only the GVW, max towing weights for both braked and unbraked trailers and the max combined weight (gross train weight?) are quoted on the car.Tha aside it was a 15dci and a great car for towing both for towing especially for economy.
