Don't know numbers for the B190 or
the Safari. But there are two
limits to deal with:
1 - What the hitch receiver is rated for. Probably
5000# for a full-sized van conversion.
2 - GCWR minus the B190's actual loaded weight. Tongue weight is considered part of the loaded weight, though. A B190's loaded weight, like most van conversions, is probably pretty close to the GVWR, so for a ballpark estimate you could use GCWR minus GVWR to get an idea of the allowable trailer weight, which probably
will be less than what the receiver is rated for. You should be able to find those numbers in the owner's manual or on the driver's side door post.
