MPTLM stands for the ‘Maximum Permissible Laden Mass’ and is the maximum weight a vehicle can be inclusive of the user payload (as determined by the capacity of the vehicle chassis)
WARNING: under no circumstances should the maximum technical permissible laden mass of your caravan be exceeded.
MRO stands for ‘Mass in Running Order’ and is the weight of the caravan or motorhome as it leaves the factory in its standard form. All items listed in the Product Specifications of our vehicles are included in this figure.
Within the quoted MRO figure there is an allowance made for ‘essential habitation equipment’ which consists of the following:
1 x full gas bottle & 1 x mains electric cable = 14 kgs.
Also if a ‘wet’ central heating system, such as ALDE, is fitted as part of the standard specification an additional 10kgs in single axle models and 12kgs in twin axle models is allowed for the fluid within the system
User Payload is the difference between the MPTLM and the MRO and is the maximum additional weight that can be added to the vehicle through the loading of personal possessions and fitment of optional extras
The declared MPTLM of our caravans in some instances may be lower a value than the maximum capacity of the vehicle chassis. In these cases a weight plate upgrade may be available to purchase. Please visit our weight plate upgrade page for more information
