Hi All,

 

Quick couple of questions if I may.

 

1. What do you think I should use as an average persons weight?

 

2. What do you think is a reasonable load per person to put into a caravan?

 

Just want to make sure I am using sensible figures.

 

Thanks

For us

 

Adult say 80kg (average) x 2

child 1 30kg

Child 2 20kg

Baby 10kg

 

 

 

clothes per adult male 15kg - 20kg

clothes per adult wife 50kg :rolleyes:

kids clothes 10kg x 2

kids toys 10kg

baby cloths 10kg x 1

kitchen bits 20kg

bedding etc 10kg

travel cot 2kg (samsonite popup)

 

I would have thought for a family of 5 120kg would be more than enough.

 

Beer awning and wine in the car.

 

the weights for the car should exclude the driver (so the heaviest must drive! - what a joke)

Thanks for your figures, so using them,

4 adults @ 80kg = 320kg

2 teens @ 35ks = 70kg

People total = 390Kg

 

Clothes

4 adults @ 20kg = 80Kg (ignored wife adnormality)

2 teens @ 10ks = 20ks
