I weighed our caravan, a Lunar Clubman SB, as I was curious as to whether it was overweight when loaded for touring or not. I used a Reich caravan scale that I brought a couple of years ago and thought the result was interesting enough to share.
Nose weight: 85kg
Near-side wheel weight: 553kg
Off-side wheel weight: 735kg
Making a total of 1378 kg that fortunately is below the plated maximum of 1440kg.
The reason for the disparity between the two sides is that all the domestic equipment and the toilet is located on the off-side of our caravan.
I think a visit to a weighbridge is still warrented, if only to confirm the accuracy of the Reich scales. I shall have to check if there is a public weigh bridge close to my route when next towing.
I’ve expanded this topic on another post.
