    if you hold a pre '97 C1+E then the limit is 8250kg with the max for the RV being 7500kg.

    test taken after '97 then the limit is 12000kg but the RV's weight is still 7500kg.

    if you hold C+E the limit is the RV's train weight

    when on a trailer the cars weight is immaterial providing the trailers gross weight is more than the cars unladen weight

    Or the train weight of the towing vehicle whichever is LEAST.
    What is your train weight?

    if you have an HGV licence (C+E) there is no limit, other than train weight....IE: 20ton RV and 10ton trailer.
    with a C+E you can drive any weight road vehicle.

    a post '97 C1+E is limited to 12000kg (RV plus trailer)

    Sorry, missed this bit :Doh:

    the train weight is the maximum trailer weight your RV is rated to tow plus the RV's gross weight.

    if your RV weighs 7500kg and can legally tow a 5000kg trailer then the train weight is 12500kg
