Nose weight?
Hi Everyone can anyone help me please I own a 2016 Citroen berlingo100 Blue Hdi 1.6 XTR multispace and I am looking to tow a caravan so I need to know the nose weight of the berlingo. Citroen UK says it 56kg My Citroen dealer says it 56kg Citroen in france say it's 70kg and my tow bar people say it's 70kg I've also had a look in the hand book it says 55kg  so I am scratching my head can anybody  help or know of this discrepancy please can you help as I am lost thank you Andy [Image: sad.png]
Noseweight of current model is 70kg. It’s on the towbar & in my handbook. That’s what I run mine at. I have no idea how Cit arrive at these different weights. My previous 2009 XTR had 55kg noseweight. Then after 2011 models it went to 70kg then at some point it went to 56kg & then back up to 70kg. Although most Peugeot Partner models which is same car are all 56kg. So as pointed out you are ok to run yours at 70kg if it states 70kg on towbar. I can’t really see how 15kg would make much difference anyway.

Go with the handbook and Citroen UK and you won't go wrong.

FWIW & IMHO, the safe option is the lower weight, esp if that's what Citroen quote. Towbars may be made to a higher spec for different versions of the same vehicle, or to a lower spec to meet a price point. If it's a caravan or trailer, can't the weight be balanced by shifting the load or adding some ballast? If you can balance the weight, it's the overall weight you need to be more concerned about?
