    Hi, I have an Accord CDTi 2005. Im thinking of getting a trailer tent about 500kg and wondered what the Accords are like for towing or does anyone know the maximum weight what these can tow. I don't have a tow bar fitted yet either so would need to invest in a good one of these too.

    Any advice would be appreciated. I've never done any towing so no nothing about this.

    we do like our camping so wanting a trailer tent instead of a tent.

    I can have a look but the maximum permissible tow limits should be in the owners manual mate ?

    I can safely say Mark your fine with a trailer tent.
    I towed with my 2006 7 th gen diesel for years and no problem what so ever with a caravan.
    From memory the max tow weight was 1600 kg for a manual with brakes on trailer.
    The Auto is a lot less though around 600 kg
