Information our weight specifications

TABBERT caravans come with generous permissible vehicle payload options. By means of innovative solutions such as using high performance steel chassis’ and honeycomb technology on furniture, low vehicle net weights are being realized.

The mass of the empty vehicle as referred to in the price list is the mass of the vehicle with standard equipment and without basic equipment, i.e. without „ liquids“ and without optional fittings as referred to in art. 2, ciff. 3 VO (EU) 1230/2012 Mass in running order, see Articel 2, ciff. 4 a) VO (EU) 1230/2012, unless nothing different is regulated, is defined as follows:

Mass of the vehicle with standard equipment as referred to in manufacturer specifications:

+ Steel liquid gas bottles (11 kg) filled to 100 % (i. e. 23 kg total mass)

+ Fresh water tank (fi lled to 100%)

+ Toilet flush tank (100 % full)

+ Fresh water boiler fi lled to 100%

= Mass in ready-to-start mode

The „permissible total mass“ see Articel 2, ciff. 7 VO (EU) 1230/2012 is defined as follows:

The mentioned vehicle‘s maximum mass from the manufacturer in loaded state (incl. Optional equipment/extras/packages and gas, water, luggage and load, etc.)

For you as TABBERT caravan user:

The maximum permissible payload as referred to in the TABBERT catalogue is defined as:

Tecnically authorized total mass

- mass in running order
= maximum permissible payload


(Tecnically authorized total mass) 1.400 kg

- (Mass in running order) 1.090 kg

= (Maximum permissible payload) 310 kg

Please note that maximum permissible payload as referred to in the catalogues, for example if the mass of the additional fitting is reduced.

Please note that your TABBERT caravan still must have a minimum payload capacity (= minimum payload) after deduction of optional equipment‘s mass from the maximum permissable payload, which may not be below the minimum payload (cf. attachment I, part D, para. VO (EU) 1230/2012):

(Maximum number of berths + total length (in m) of the vehicle body) x 10 = Minimum permissible payload (kg)


[(Maximum number of berths) 4 + (total length (in m) of vehicle body) 5] x 10 = 90 kg

The mass of the vehicle with standard equipment according to manufacturer specifications is determined through weighing of the vehicle with standard fitting.

Mistakes and changes are excepted. After the deadline (07/2016) there can be made product modifications. With publication of this price information previous lists are no longer valid.

Dimensions and weight data may vary ca.+/–5 % due to tolerances of the natural raw materials used see attachment 2, ciff. 2.2 b) VO (EU) 1230/2012 As a user of a caravan, you are required not to exceed the values of the permissible total mass in driving mode, and respective maximum permissible axle load and nose weight limits. Furthermore, you are obliged to adhere to all other requirements for a safe usage of your caravan.

The mattress dimension can slightly differ from the stated bed dimensions. Information about the capacity of the refrigerators refer to the manufacturer specifications. For organisational reasons it is not possible to pick up the vehicle in the works of the manufacturer. The water supply system is minimum state of the art (03/2009) (Regulation 2002/72/EG).
