Having to look at UK heavy weight caravans in Caravan Chat Posted 1 hour ago · Edited 1 hour ago by Lutz 3 hours ago, Whomer said: It costs @£150 to bump up the axle/tyres to the next weight up as a factory fit option. If manufacturers wanted to, they could do it . 300kg should be the minimum acceptable standard. Just as an example, Hobby ask €398 to raise the MTPLM from 1600kg to 1750kg on their 540KMF and €891 (with silver alloy wheels) to up it to 2000kg, or €1020 if you want black alloy wheels, so there's a good profit margin there for the taking. Surely that would be a lucrative opportunity for UK manufacturers, too. I've never understood why they don't take advantage of it.
