tongueWeight is the maximum weight your trailer hitch can handle of the downward force exerted on it by the trailer's tongue (the arm that extends from the trailer that couples with the tow vehicle's receiver) (snippet taken from http://auto.howstuffworks.com/auto-parts/towing/vehicle-towing/maneuvers/dead-weight-towed-weight1.htm). In essence, how much your trailer can push down the pulling car without lifting its wheels.

trailerWeight is the maximum weight is of a fully loaded trailer, so in essence how much the pulling vehicle + trailer hitch can pull in driving direction.


> 2. Vehicle has an interiorColor property. Would you advise using the "color" property for the exterior color?
Yes.

> 3. There is a lot of detail here. Do you have examples that can be published on schema.org to help guide users?

Yes, they are already included in

http://sdo-property-value-and-cars.appspot.com/Car

Please scroll down to examples or see here

    https://github.com/mfhepp/schemaorg/blob/property-value-and-cars/data/sdo-automobile-examples.txt

Again, thanks for looking at the proposal. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.
