What's the towing capacity

of an 83 110 with a TDi. I don't know which TDi or which trans- I would assume a LT77 or R380, not an 85. It would be a trailer with brakes, on road.

thanks!

I pull a 3000 Lb trailer with the 90. For camping trips. I have even taken it on some long long trips. the short wheel base makes it a bit squirlly but you shouldn't have that problem. My book states 7000 Lb I would not advise that in fact us Dot only gives it a rating of 3500 lb. . I can see why. All this is based on a petrol d 90. Sorry but thats the only experience I have.

110's are more stable.
I used to tow an 88" V8 off-roader on a twin axle trailer no problem.
V8 weighed 1500kg and the trailer was no lightweight either - very stable though.
