any caravan repair / service business will have scales or take it to a weighing station, weigh the car, then the trailer, then both and it can all be worked out
It may scare you a bit, my D4 and van all loaded and full of fuel is over 5.5 ton :eek:

Nice trailer, I am sure you will have some great holidays with it.
What is the ball weight when loaded? It was ball weight that put me off a lot of the latest design camper trailers
The trailer is the classic fold the little sister to the dominator, so not a lot of storage in front of axel keeping the ball weight low.
Ball weight was about 160-170kg can’t recall 100%
its 130kg unloaded. Fill the water tank at the back 100L less weight on ball then add gas bottle and food Front section.
I will do a weight check again when I load it up next to be 100%.

Well the new suspension is in. Lifted vehicle total hight by 90mm.
so the old suspension had dropped 50mm, lift kit was a 40mm lift.
I can’t upload pics as it’s saying file is to big, might be the new update restrictions/settings.

So essentially it's just a 40mm lift over standard height then.
While did you go to & what was the package you got in the end, springs, shock, could etc??

Yes 100% correct.
I ended up with the Dodinsons 40mm lift with a constant 250kg spring set. Ironman was what I was going for in the beginning, but after 3 weeks they got back to us saying they did not have all the front end components.

Well the next step has been done.
xrox bullbar has been put on, I still need to trim a little more off the factory bumper to give that little bit more flex room.
I will be adding a 9500lb Carbon winch tomorrow.
also replaced the old oricom uhf with a GME xrs-370 big change for the better.

Hummm still can’t add pics :(

got a pic small enough to upload :D
There was no room to fit the controller box in with the winch so it had to go on top of bar. So adding spot lights are now out.
