Maybe the vans brakes where not released?
I have pulled 400kg trailer+1400 cargo+ ca 400kg was in the car with no problems No big up starts tough.
Thats why automatics are better in towing.

I've always felt that first gear on an Exy is too "tall" for towing. Mind you, I live in a very hilly part of the country!

I have just started towing a caravan with mine as I dont think foreign travel will be the same for a long time mine is 1445kg plus whatever gets packed inside and tows it ok sometimes I feel like its a bit under powered but it could be a incline on the road or something, first time I towed it it was fine getting at around 65-70mph but the last couple of outings it seems to prefer 50-55mph before it starts to weave a bit.

I tow a caravan with my T31 and it barely knows it's there. It's not a particularly big or heavy caravan though, only about a ton, but the outfit goes up hill and overtakes as if the car was on its own. I sometimes find myself checking its still there! My X Trail is automatic which I find is a big help.

Perfect getaway car.

I have towed 2 1/2cubic meters of firewood. It was hard, but we managed. Had to drive on wet grass uphill a few hunderd meters with no swet. On the motorway, i used manual mode to rev higher.
And reversing with a heavy trailer in an automatic, is easy.
