Trailer/Caravan Ratings and Masses
« on: Dec 02, 2018, 01:20:25 PM »
Many who are new to the towing and caravaning game will have struggled to understand the jargon, and the relationships between tare weight, GVM, GCM, GTM, ATM, ball loading etc.

I found a very neat, compact "aide-memoire" from the Caravan Council of Australia (CCA) that explains the terms and the relationships very well. It applies equally to trailers of all descriptions.

You can also find it here: http://www.caravancouncil.com.au/compliance

Enjoy.
