Rank #2: Caravan Weights Part B

Podcast cover
Read more

It isn't just about weight. It is about where the weight it.

Water tank location, how much water to carry, how you store you food and where: there are many considerations with weight. With a limited payload to consider every kilogram counts: even cutlery!! And don't forget to add in those stashed bottles of wine under your bed or seats!!

Roy covers off everything you need to know including running through different scenarios and how to keep things in check.

Rank #3: Caravan Weights Part C

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode Roy explains the role of a manufacturer/renovator in the weight of caravans.

During the design phase, weights are a primary consideration and are often in conflict with the wants of a caravan owner. For instance more drawers or storage add weight which actually means you lose payload and you can carry less!!

Other considerations are construction materials, inclusions such as batteries and water tank - don't forget to add the weight of water when the tanks are full. Roy explains this scenario and more in this episode.

With an average payload of 600kg, caravan owners need to be aware that this is all of the weight that they can add. Toolboxes, water, food, drinks, additions and other items can soon put you over the limit if you are not careful.

Being overweight can lead to trouble with the law, or even worse lead to your caravan swaying while towing.
