Trailer Loading Tips
- All trailer loads must be securely tied down.
- Do not overload your trailer, check your towing vehicle load capacity and stay within its limits as well as the trailers load capacity.
Load your trailer with the bulk of the weight over the trailers axle(s) and keep the load as low to the trailer floor as possible.
The load on your towbar should be between 30 to 60 kg depending on your trailer type and the trailer drawbar should be sitting on the towing vehicle , level or slightly nose down.
- An unbalanced load can cause your trailer to pivot on the towbar, forcing the towing vehicle to sway from side to side.
- To reduce the chance of swaying always ensure the largest proportion of your load in the centre of the trailer, and try to avoid sudden changes of direction, especially when changing lanes or overtaking.
- If your trailer starts to sway, do not brake, remove your foot from the accelerator and allow the vehicle to slow.
- On a long trip, regularly check your load as it may settle due to road vibration and loosen.
- Your load must not extend more than 1.25 metres on either side of the trailer centreline (The maximum allowable width is 2.550 metres)
- Any load that extends more than 1 metre behind the trailer must have a clearly visible white, red, orange or yellow fluorescent flag attached, The flag must measure 400mm x 300mm. Any load hanging from the back of the trailer must not touch the ground or obscure your indicator and brake lights.
- Your load must not extend more than 4 metres from the trailer axle or the centre of the axles
