Not sure what you are asking? Please clarify.

If your are flat towing a car, the weight on the tow vehicle hitch is only that of the tow-bar itself.

Without actually doing the math, it is probably about 1/2 of the weight of the tow bar, since the other 1/2 is supported by the towed vehicle.

I'm with Tim, towing a toad 4 down only 1/2 the weight of the bar is on the coach axle.
The whole weight, bar and toad , are added to the coach weight for GCWR.
