As above, every vehicle has different load ratings, which are usually recorded in your vehicles owner’s manual. You will need to consider whether the weight is positioned over the front 1/2 or rear 1/2 of your vehicle as your vehicle manufacturer might have set limits for front and rear axles, as well as the total weight of the vehicle (GVM).   Additionally you may need to consider that if you will be towing a trailer or caravan, you need to ensure towing capacity does not exceed the manufacturer ratings.
