    I'm assuming that any panniers/luggage would be in the Yaris and not on the 1150.

    Some vehicles don't have type approval for towing, although a Yaris 1•0L can tow up to 400kg.

    Yes, I think Motolug is the way to go, if I can find one reasonably priced

    I fit a Dave Cooper rack to the tow bar of my lwb relay van that could carry lots of weight.
    I didnt understand why the rack on the back could only take 150kg when i could put lots more inside.
    Briefly looked into it and it has to do with how far back from rear axle the tow bar and load is which the longer distance causing leverage which is then lifting the front of the vehicle thus loosing steering and control. Sumat like that anyway
