Caravan Weight Check

RV Weight Checks

Caravan Repair Centre offers a weight checking service for your mobile home, so that you can make sure that you are within legal limits before setting off on your next adventure. Weighing your caravan is important, so that you can avoid a fine and losing points on your licence, but there’s much more to it. Keeping your caravan or motorhome within legal limits will ensure a safer trip for you and your family. Having a balanced caravan will reduce the risk of accidents in high winds, slippery conditions and rough roads.​

Weighing your caravan before your next trip will help you save time in packing, as you will have a good idea of how much you can take with you. It will also help keep your caravan running efficiently, and make sure that you aren’t voiding your warranty by driving an overloaded vehicle.

So to make sure you have a safe, easy and efficient caravan journey, come and get your weight checked at Caravan Repair Centre today.

FAQ- Caravan Weight Checks

How long does a caravan weight check take?

It is usually approx. 45 min to an hour. This allows us time to discuss your weights with you and any suggestions we have to improve the weight distribution in your van, and your ball weight, which is a common weight that needs to be brought down.

What vehicles can you weigh?

We can weigh most types of single and dual axle trailers, caravans, pop tops, camper trailers, campervans, motorhomes up to 8T. We can also weigh your tow vehicle, including boats loaded on top. We cannot weigh- fifth wheelers and goose necks due to the design of the scales to get an accurate weight on the attachment.

What should I have in my van for a caravan weight check?

We recommend you have your van loaded up with as much of your gear as possible to being ready to go on a trip to give you a true indication of what your van weighs. Of course, any items missing, you can manually add in, but there is room for error with this system. If you travel with your boat, we recommend you include it in the weigh. Suggestions include: filling water tanks, full tank of fuel, firewood etc.
