Explanation:

What is nose weight, and how important is it?

A caravan's noseweight is the down force exerted on the caravan hitch by the weight of the caravan. It is important for two reasons. Firstly your towcar' towing bracket and rear suspension have to be able to handle it, and secondly most caravans tow best with a nose weight of about 7% of the caravan's laden weight. In practice this means a noseweight which is generally between 50 and 90 kg.
Your car's handbook should give information on maximum nose weights and provided the figure equates to 7% or more of the caravan's laden weight there should not be a problem. Beware that some early Land Rover Discoveries had noseweight limits of just 50 kg - a very low figure for a vehicle of this type. Caravan manufacturers often quote a noseweight limit too - check this is compatible with the 7% recommendation.
