Calculating trailer weight

Postby campervan » Mon May 30, 2016 7:57 am

Anybody got an estimate of how much a musto and its trolley weigh?
My reckoning is 120kg.

A triple stacker probably weighs 300kg.
All up weight about 700kg?
I am aware that 750kg trailer has to have brakes.

Trying to work out the overall trailer and nose weights before leaving for Carnac tomorrow.
I have 90kg nose weight, so taken the spare wheel off the nose and removed the gas canisters from the back of the van.

The trailer nose weight needs to be compatible with the vehicle that's towing it, so you need to ensure the vehicles max. towing nose weight isn't exceeded...
