Towing a car transporter trailer in EU

I'd like to take my 7 through France to Spain on my car trailer. When I Google this it suggests in France I'm limited to 750 KG gross. Surely this can't be correct as people tour Europe with caravans.

I couldn't point you to any policy on the subject, but I towed a car across France and Belgium to the Nürburgring in April 2022 without trouble.

As a French resident (which I no longer am) if I wanted to tow my Brian james sprint shuttle with a French registered car I needed a carte gris(logbook) for the trailer because it was over a certain capacity (can't remember the exact figure). If I towed it with an English registered car that no longer applied

Normally, if you can tow your car legally in your home country, you also can abroad
