    Load distribution

    Distribute the load in the trailer so that the heaviest items are as close as possible to the axle, and the nose weight approaches the maximum permitted without exceeding it.

    Air density decreases with altitude, thus reducing engine performance. The maximum towable load must be reduced by 10% per 1,000  metres of altitude.

    Peugeot 2008. Towing device Use genuine towing devices and their wiring harnesses approved by PEUGEOT. We recommend having them fitted by a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.
