I used the search and couldn't find this info so...

My auto wagon didn't come with an owners manual. Anybody know what the towing capacity is?

My '99 Owners manual for USA/Canada lists the towing capacity as 3000 lbs. But it also doesn't mention the existence of a wagon. I hauled our 1500 lb tent trailer with mine... it was like pulling a 20 ft piece of rope. By braked they mean trailer brakes. Don't try to haul any trailer over 1000 lb without brakes.

Nice! I'm building a boat and the boat/trailer/motor should weight around 1500lbs. Defineltly getting surge brakes on the trailer.

IIRC the limit for the 9-5 for an unbraked trailer is 750kgs gross weight [around 1600lbs]; that limit is the European maximum allowed.
