Before setting off on your adventure you should check that the caravan doesn’t exceed the permissible total weight, but most importantly that it is correctly loaded. It’s not only overloading – uneven and single-sided weight distribution can also have a negative impact on the caravan’s stability and can turn even the lightest braking into a nightmare scenario.
The handy Caravan Weight Control (CWC) scale offers the ability to easily determine the right-left weight distribution of your trailer, thereby preventing dangerous swaying when travelling. It gives you 100% control over the overall weight of your caravan and the partial loads on the individual wheels.
The CWC is capable of weighing single-axle, tandem-axle and four-wheeled vehicles – the type of vehicle being weighed is simply set on the scale.
Three different weighing programs can be set:
- Caravan with a single axle and jockey wheel
- Caravan with a tandem axle and jockey wheel
The CWC is available in two different versions.
The yellow scale is suitable for trailers, caravans and smaller motorhomes with a maximum bearing load of up to 1,000 kg per wheel.
The orange scale is suitable for heavier trailers, caravans and larger motorhomes with a maximum bearing load of up to 1,500 kg per wheel.
For a precise result the CWC should stand on a solid, level and clean surface. The scale has a slight deviation of approx. 3%. To determine the exact weight you should therefore weigh your trailer three times. The average value of the three different results is then very precise.
You can now set off on your holiday at the ideal weight!
