There isn’t really any rule of thumb relating to size and weight of a caravan. A small caravan packed to the gunnels with kit could be heavier than a larger, possibly older, caravan. Newer models have become heavier over the years. Nearly all caravans today over 3 metres long (10ft) have a toilet room, only shorter ones not having the necessary space to include one. If you’re only going to be on sites where toilets are provided, this is less important, but if you will be staying on sites such as Certificated Locations, then the Caravan Code requires that you have your own facilities.
Only the very largest caravans need four wheels to bear their fully laden weight, most caravans being very adequately supported by one axle. Some caravan bodies can be fitted with either to give the buyer choice. So which is best? In theory, two tyres on each side of the caravan give better grip than one and bring better stability. When parked, however, the twin axle caravan does not necessarily stand level and may have a heavier noseweight than that of a single axle.
When choosing a caravan, check the amount you can carry in the caravan (payload allowance) in the handbook. With older caravans prior to the mid 1990’s the quoted weight has a 5% tolerance, officially plus or minus, but in practice always plus!
From 1999 all caravans are built to a European Standard and you’ll find the following information in the user’s handbook. The term ‘mass’ means the weight: The maximum permissible laden mass (MTPLM) - previously known as MAW - in kilograms The mass in running order (MIRO), in kilograms The maximum user payload (MTLPLM minus MIRO) in kilograms The weight of the essential habitation equipment for the caravan, in kilograms.
