  1. Good evening, I was at the local Caravan Accessories shop preparing to buy a couple of electrical sockets for our Folding Caravan when I spotted a 2014 Coachman VIP 462. So I approached the Salesperson ... The Coachman is a beauty and has been well looked after and when we sank into the upholstery, we were just about sold on it. HOWEVER, the Coachman website, the advertising literature, the Dealer's Window Display in the van all refer to MIRO 1330kg and MPLM 1455kg, whereas the plate on the side of the van states MIRO 1330 and MTPLM 1500kg! The towcar, VW Tiguan 150 SCR Diesel [
  2. Hi and apologies to a question which i will know has been asked many times but want to check, with it being more specific to my own situation I'm thinking of purchasing a caravan soon - 2016 ELDDIS XPLORE 586, which has the following spec; 6 berth, Single axle Mass in Running Order (Kg) - 1155 Maximum Technical Permissible Laden Mass (Kg) - 1350 Internal Length (metres) - 5. 7 Shipping Length (metres) - 7. 29 Width (metres) - 2. 18 My towcar is a 2016 Skoda Octavia Estate SE Technology 2. 0 TDi (150ps), with the following spec;
  3. Hi everyone I'm in need of a little help. I'm very new to this and have been researching all the acronyms when discussion ratios of kerb-weight to towing weight etc, but I've come to a major question. .. (We don't currently have a caravan (and only a ford fiesta) so we're trying to look at matching a 2-berth caravan and a small panel van, lets say, a Renault Kangoo 1. 5 dCi . They give a kerb weight of around 1100kg for the Kangoo, and a maximum weight loaded of 1600kg. Now, I understand I can safely tow 85% of the kerb weight. .. so, 935kgs of caravan.) So my ques
  4. Do you want a laugh? Just received a letter from Bailey, via our dealer. It is accompanied by a new weight plate with a reduced MTPLM, and a matching new Certificate of Compliance. So I now have three of each, and not forgetting the fourth plate in the gas locker. 1) MTPLM 1374kg (The original brochure value, and I purchased a spare weight plate at that value, should anyone need the lower weight for their licence restrictions) 2) MTPLM 1500kg (I got the upgrade included in the deal) 3) MTPLM 1450kg (Now Bailey have downgraded my upgrade, and now consistent with the A
  5. Hello all, a bit of advice (& clarification) is sought regarding tow limits, recommendations & outfit matching! I’ve got to replace my current car, because its tow limit is way too small, for something vastly better. I’ve been offered a 63 plate Skoda Superb diesel estate 2. 0 Tdi Cr Elegance 5dr for an attractive price from a reliable source with a fully known vehicle history. I’ve known the vehicle since new! So I’m really tempted, especially as its towing praises have been sung by PC on multiple occasions! I’ve yet to buy a van, but have settled on a 4 berth, front loung
  6. Hi everyone, now as we all know there seems never to be a week when a new post about weights appears and we see get all manner of extremely knowledgable and useful comments and replies but here is the thing. I'm currently in Australia and out of curiosity I picked up a random caravan magazine and flicked through the pages. Read a review of a lovely twin axle van, large double bed, huge fridge, 120 litre on board water tank, fitted (very substantial) canopy, long a frame, air conditioning, ok you get the idea but it also had a full size washing machine (domestic type) etc. and it still had o
  7. One of the themes that constantly recur on CT surrounds the subject of MTPLM. What it means and how it's applied etc. Most recently there's been debate about whether the MTPLM published by manufacturer's in brochures, handbooks and on plates/stickers on the outside of their vans, is an enforcable legal limit, or whether the axle weight figures on plates that started appearing a few years back in gas lockers and the like, override the MTPLM. Some CT members have been vociferous in insisting the latter is the legal limit and they've declined to pay for formal upgrades of their van's M
  8. Hi all, im new to caravanning! Thought i had done all my research correct but cant seem to find the answer to a specific question about weight distribution and the law. I. e. how will vosa/police view this if i get stopped. Here goes: If for example my car kerb weight is 1500kg and my caravan mtplm is say 1540. Can i carry all my luggage/food/kit/awning and anything else heavy to ensure my car weight exceeds my caravan weight, getting as close as possible to the advised 85% average. Do they always weigh your rig (van and car individually) or do they just go off the figured stamped on yo
  9. Today I've just been to inspect a bespoke built caravan for its owner prior to it being shipped overseas. The idea being that as it will be subject to their version of an IVA its best to make sure its right before it goes. Unfortunately it didn't pass muster as it exceeded the max allowable mass for each axle by about 45kg. I've just spoken to the owner and asked him if his specification to include actual Granite worktops and a metal fold out bed are really necessary. I thought the idea was to travel light?
  10. I’m confused. The Bailey Brochure ‘Pegasus Model Range – Technical Specification’ and the Bailey Handbook list the Genoa at: MRO: 1159Kg user payload: 127Kg MTPLM: 1286Kg However, the dealers’ copy of ‘Bailey Season Weights and Sizes Sheet (Revison A)’ lists the Genoa at MIRO: 1215Kg User payload: 127Kg MTPLM: 1356Kg The website ‘TowCar. info’ also lists the Genoa at these higher weights. Does anyone know which of these two sets of figures is correct?
  11. Hi to you all out there. How much importance do you place in knowing the kerbweight of your tow-vehicle and the MiRO of your caravan?. Do you take your weights from the manufacturers documentation or from a Third Party Data base?. Do you think that your outfit would stand scrutiny by VOSA?. Have you had your outfit on a weighbridge and was it a VOSA specification Dynamic Axle Weighbridge?. Have you established that the kerbweight that you were given is correct & factual by putting yourself and the tow-vehicle onto a weighbridge of any kind with 90% fuel & 7kgs of luggage, then ad
