Trailer, Caravan and Horse Float Weighing Report

Overview

We provide a professional and personal weighing service for all your vehicle and trailer requirements. This can include caravans, camper and hybrid trailers, horse floats, boat trailers, tradesman trailers, trade and fleet vehicles.

Before heading out on the road with a caravan, trailer, camper trailer or horse float in tow it is vital to ensure that your vehicle and trailer combination is road worthy, is safe to use, is well maintained, and that you are compliant with any relevant legal requirements for the states and territories you wish to visit.

Towing safely relies upon understanding the manufacturer’s ratings for your tow vehicle and the caravan, horse float or trailer combination that is being towed. Ensuring your vehicle and trailer are correctly balanced and that the weights are correct will make for a more enjoyable and safer journey without falling foul of the law. This report details relevant weights of your vehicle and trailer at the time of weighing.

This report provides a practical hands-on demonstration and explains:

GCM – Gross Combination Mass

GVM – Gross Vehicle Mass

ATM – Aggregate Trailer Mass

GAM – Gross Axle Mass

TARE – This is the unladen weight of the vehicle or trailer.

KERB Weight – This is the weight of the vehicle in its most basic form without any additions.
