I keep forgetting that we use different measuring systems, and when I saw 10000 in the first post my jaw dropped!
So I don't know equivalent weight but i'll post what we have had/do have.
We had two different two horse floats, pretty light, and we towed them both with a Holden Rodeo with a 2.5T load rating.
We now have a 3 horse angle with a kitchen and we tow it with a Holden Colorado which is rated to two 3.5T. The floats GVM is 3T.
The main thing is to try and get a vehicle that is rated to tow MORE than the trailers GVM or total weight when loaded, even if you aren't going to load it the whole way up.
Diesels are fine for around town, dads Colorado is a Turbo Diesel and he drives it 15 minutes to work every day, and i'm looking at a Patrol TD that I will be driving around town when not towing on the weekends. It will actually cost about the same as my V6 petrol ute does at the moment.
