Question;

Would this vehicle be capable of carrying a motorbike on a rack on the towbar - around 180Kgs? many thanks Make: fiat/swift Model: ducato/suntor 630L Year: 2002 Conversion: swift Body: Coach Build Brakes: I'm Not Sure What Type Of Brakes My Vehicle Has Springs: I'm Not Sure What My Rear Springs Are



Answer:
With regards to weights, the air springs will restore the ride height of your vehicle, howerver they won't on their own actually enable you to carry more weight than is stamped on your VIN plate. So its advisable to weigh your vehicle with the bike mounted, and compare the actual weights with the VIN plates. I suspect the actual weights will exceed the plated weights, so you'll need to apply for replating to a higher carrying capacity, of which the fitting of the air springs will help your application.
