Information our weight specifications

For leisure vehicles made by TABBERT, we grant you a 10-year leak-proofness guarantee on the body manufactured by us in addition to your compulsory guarantee within the framework of our guarantee conditions.

TABBERT leisure vehicles are characterised by their technical progress. Through innovative solutions such as the use of highstrength steels for the chassis or intelligent honeycomb technology in furniture construction, low tare weights of the TABBERT leisure vehicles are created.
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 the driver‘s weight, „liquids“ and optional fittings as referred to in art. 2, ciff. 3 VO (EU) 1230/2012. The mass in running order, see Articel 2, ciff. 4 a) VO (EU) 1230/2012, unless not regulated otherwise, is defined as follows:

Mass of the vehicle with standard equipment as referred to in manufacturer specifications (incl. tool kit):

+ Liquid gas bottles (5 /11 kg) filled to 100% (i. e. 10 /23 kg total mass)

+ Fresh water tank (fi lled to 100%)

+ Toilet flush tank (100 % full)

+ Fresh water boiler (filled to 100%)

= Mass in running mode

The „technically 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, i. e. the maximum permissible total mass of the vehicle in running order with special equipment and payload (passengers, luggage, etc.)

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

Technically permissible 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


The information provided for a vehicle under the heading „Technical data / equipment details“ initially refers to the basic type of model approved under the EC type-approval procedure. Within the scope of country variants and special models, these values may differ if necessary. Please inform yourself about such deviations personally at your BRAND specialist dealer. Pay particular attention to the following:
The maximum load capacity as defined in the catalogue specifications is reduced, for example, by the mass of the additional equipment.
When selecting additional equipment, you are responsible for ensuring that your TABBERT leisure vehicle, after deducting the mass of the additional equipment from the maximum load capacity, must still have a minimum load capacity (= minimum payload) which must under no circumstances be undercut (see Annex I, Part D, ciff. OF (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

As the buyer of a TABBERT leisure vehicle, you are obliged to comply with the minimum payload. If the vehicle you wish to order does not have the required payload capacity and minimum payload due to the optional equipment selected, you have two options to choose from for your order:

  • Increasing the load of the vehicle
  • De-selecting optional equipment

Your TABBERT dealer will provide you with information on the remaining minimum payload of your vehicle at any time upon request.
The mass of the vehicle with standard equipment according to manufacturer specifications is determined through weighing of the vehicle with standard serial equipment.
As a user of a caravan, you are obliged to comply with the “technically permissible total mass“ and the respective maximum axle and drawbar loads when driving and to ensure that the load distribution is appropriate and dependent on axle and drawbar load.
Furthermore, you are obliged to observe all other regulations necessary for the safe operation of your caravan.
