Frequently asked questions

If your Caravan is overweight, it is not legal to drive. If you are pulled over by police and checked at a mobile weigh station, you can receive fines of up to $1,500, lose points off your license, and worse yet: your caravan or trailer could tip over and cause an accident. In case of injury or death, legal charges may follow.

Getting your caravan weighed with Weigh to Go costs $110 AUD. That includes the service + a full report on whether your caravan is road legal or not and what you need to do next. Of course, our expert advice is also included for free!

If your caravan is overweight and you’re involved in an accident, your insurance claim can be rejected. Save yourself the headache and get weighed before you get on the road to make sure your caravan is within the limit. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

Weight distribution distributes the total weight of the trailer, including cargo, fuel and anything else in the truck, to the vehicle’s and trailer’s axles, relieving the vehicle’s bumper for increased safety and maneuverability. It’s important for the balance of your caravan and vehicle that your weight is distributed properly. If not, your entire vehicle is at risk of tipping over and causing an accident.

The weight that your vehicle is allowed to tow can usually be found in the vehicle manufacturer’s instructions manual. However, it’s not always that simple. Modifications, additions, and other work done to your Caravan or vehicle can affect how much strain it can handle while still remaining safe to drive.

Tare Mass = The mass of your caravan or vehicle with nothing in it.

GCM = Gross Combined Mass. The combined maximum gross mass of your Caravan or vehicle.

GVM = Gross Vehicle Mass. The limit of weight that your car can support, including the car, passengers, and tow ball mass. This is set by the manufacturer and is illegal to exceed.

GTM = Gross Trailer Mass. The limit of the weight your Caravan can support, excluding the weight supported by the tow bar or the jockey wheel.

ATM = Aggregate Trailer Mass. The measurement calculated by adding the Tare Mass of your Caravan to its maximum payload. This rating is set by the manufacturer and is illegal to exceed.

There are many factors that weigh into whether your setup is road legal or not. If you are unsure, it is better to find out. Get it touch and book a time to get tested by us before your next big adventure!
