A Guide to Tow Ball Weights with CIA VIC

Before hooking your caravan on to your car and hitting the road for your next adventure, there are a number of important things to keep in mind such as variations between your tow ball weight and what it says on your vehicle plate.

The vehicle plate can be located in a number of areas on your caravan and has all the key information about your caravan, including weights. Be aware that ‘Empty Ball Mass’ on a vehicle plate means the caravan manufacturer has weighed the caravan when it is empty, so your ball weight will vary when you take into account things like water, gas, food and luggage. Keep this in mind when matching your caravan’s weight up to your car’s capacity.
