Is it worth the risk?

overloaded

 

Why do you need to know the weight of your caravan 4WD motorhome boat or trailer?

As the driver the buck stops in your lap, if your overloaded it is your fault , no one else.

Does your Caravan GTM, ATM or AGL  exceed the manufacturers specifications?

Does your tow vehicle exceed its FAGL , RAGL, GVM, BTC, GCM or TBM exceed specifications?

Are you confused by all these acronyms?

As the driver of a tow vehicle you are required to make sure that your rig is within limits set out by the manufacturer for all of these.

Should you have an incident along the road that results in an insurance claim and your are found to be over then your insurance will most likely be void.

If your load is out of balance then your reliable caravan following meekly along behind will misbehave and the safety of you, your passengers, and other traffic is likely to be compromised.
