Double check with your motor registry, but from my hazy memory the legal limit of towing in Oz is about 3/4 of the weight of your car, including trailer etc.

And yes you will be able to get rotors and pads in australia

I've seen pictures of Legnum towing a fairly large boat, so I don't think you'll have any real problems there, maybe send an email to the guys at Kempy's in NZ about how much a second hand setup will cost.

that would be before the trailer requires its own brakes right? Id imagine if the trailer/caravan has its own brakes then it could be a lot heavier.

They get rated to 1500kg over here, but Williams big boat is well over 2 ton and he hasn't a problem with it.

Yeah sorry forgot to mention that.

With brakes, I'm not sure what the limit is.

I just checked it out with the RTA:

With brakes you can tow up to 1.5 times the weight of an unladen vehicle (under 4.5 tonnes gvm) if the manufacturer doesn't have a specified towing limit.

Without brakes it's up to the weight of the car itself (unladen again) and again, if the manufacturer doesn't have a specified towing limit.

Sorry for the misinformation before...I just remembered it being not as much as a lot of people thought so I wanted to make sure :)

Here's the link to the NSW RTA's document (remember other states can be different):
