The Payload will not be displayed on the weight plate, but you can calculate your Payload like this:
MTPLM – MRO = PAYLOAD
To ensure your payload is within your allowance, it’s a good idea to weigh everything that goes into the caravan. You can do this by using a set of bathroom scales. Simply weigh yourself and then yourself again with the items you wish to stow away in the caravan.
Before we move onto the weight plate upgrade, there is a final complication. Caravan accessories such as motor movers, aftermarket solar panels, axle jacking points and air conditioning units, take their weight out of the Payload value. These are add-on items that were not fitted as part of the core product when the caravan left the factory.
(n.b. – this does not include retailer specials – Please consult the retailer about available payloads on retailer special caravans)
To give you an idea, let’s look at the following caravan with some accessories added onto it:
Motor mover 35Kg
Solar Panel 7Kg
Air Conditioning 30Kg
