This is the total maximum weight allowed of trailer and anything in it. Has to be there by law. In addition weight of trailer and what's in it ought not to be more than around 60 - 80% of car weight for stability

there are weights on the VIN sticker on the door face

The weight of Car, Trailer and anything THAT COULD BE in trailer has not got to be more than Max Train weight (2nd down).

In addition trailer has got to be loaded so that rear axle figure is not exceeded
