The axles have plates showing maximum weights. 1050kg I should think.

Are you looking to see if the MTPLM can be uprated?

Not as easy as that the tyre have a maximum load the chassis has a plate from the manufacturer that gives a maximum weight on the A frame the hitch has a plate also The caravan manufacturer gives a maximum weight and if the caravan has type approval plating it is illegal to change any plating.

 

All can be used in a prosecution.

I have never seen a weight marked on the A frame or other part of the chassis on any of my caravans.

 

The chassis are usually supplied as sections to be be assembled to suit a particular body for which the caravan manufacturer specifies a maximum weight. AFAIK this is the only maximum weight (MAM) plate or marking to be found on the body. The axle and drawbar assemblies will also be 'plated' with a maximum load.

My BPW has a chassis plate on the A frame in German giving the nose weight and MAM but you have to bend down to read it as you would not see it under the plastic A frame cover standing. .

Is that in addition to an Elddis plate on the caravan. .....with the same weights? Perhaps this is to conform to type approval requirements where each part must be approved.

 

There weren't any on the chassis of my Hobbys (own chassis), Burstner (Alko chassis) nor Adria (Alko). Can't rember further back than that.

not wanting to appear to be having a dig at anyone but if posts of a more serious matter were responded to by DW we could all sleep better at night, I know I would.

EWVTA requires components to be identified.

 

I think you will find it's not specific to your caravan as it's a plate for the A frame (Zuggabel) up to (bis max) 1900mm length and combined (gesamptgewicht) with a trailer weight up to 2000kg. It has no individual serial number only the numbers of various specs with which it complies.

 

It can be used to construct a trailer chassis within those dimensions and weights.

 

The Elddis weight plate will be the legal definition and should be within those of the chassis' component parts

My caravan is 6yrs old and not EWVTA. The Elddis plate by the door just gives the MTPLM .
