When towing a trailer, caravan, horsebox and more with your L200, great care should be taken at all times. Before towing, always do your homework before setting off. You need to know the law and how not to break it. If you’ve never towed before, practice with lighter tow loads and develop your skills.
Remember the 85% rule. In addition to the manufacturer’s stated max towing capacity, it is recommended that the weight to be towed should not exceed 85% of the “kerb weight” of the towing vehicle. The “kerb weight” is defined as the weight of your vehicle plus a full tank of fuel and 75kg. Find out the towing capacity of your Mitsubishi L200 below – in model year order.

Know your trailer weight.
You need to know your trailer weight in order for you to know your Mitsubishi L200 can handle the trailer. Every L200 has a towing capacity you must not exceed.
You can find this out by checking the gross trailer weight (trailer weight + the load) against Mitsubishi’s stated maximum towing capacity for your vehicle.
