Which would leave only the US, since, besides Burma and Liberia, you're the only English speaking country not using metric. Since the last survey, the latter two countries may have already adopted the system.

WELL FIRST OFF, please learn to use regular text and capital letter in the right context. I can't believe that you haven't heard that typing in ALL CAPS makes it look like you are angry. We have 'Smilies' for that.

Sheesh, you'd think a Canadian would know that!

GVWR =5600 lbs. I think that translates to "small and/or vintage"
but talk to Andy at Can-Am. He can probably find a hitch reinforcement that will allow you to tow a 34 foot tri-axle! .... or at least a 23 footer.

GVWR= Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. Total weight of vehicle and all cargo and passengers. This is not a towing capacity. THAT would be GCVWR, or total weight of vehicle, passengers, cargo, and trailer.
