If the tow bar does get through LTSA certification the most common task will be to mount our bike rack with two eBikes. Alternatively, my jet boat that comes in about 600kg on the trailer and about 30 kg on the ball. If the boat gets the tick, I will have to make up some sort of racks for the bikes to go on the boat.
In either case the tow bar and its mounting points will not suffer any excessive loading.
My old work truck with only a 3.0 metre wheel base had the tow bar a fair distance from the the rear axle and apart from being grossly under powered when faced with towing our 3500 kg + caravan with around 380 kg on the ball did not have much noticeable effect on driving dynamics related the transfer of axle weights. The truck with no water in the tanks was around 2300 kg on the front and 1800 kg on the rear.
