Facts to consider when Constructing a Trailer
a) The Vin number supplied by the transport authority.
b) Date of manufacture.
c) The tare weight of the trailer, (unladen weight). A certificate can be obtained from any public weigh bridge and must accompany the registration paper.
d) ATM or Aggregate Trailer Mass, which is the tare weight plus the load capacity of the trailer. E.g. If the tare or unladen weight of the trailer is 300 kg, you add the load you expect to carry in the trailer (having regard to the capacity of the axles and springs), say 450 kg to arrive at the ATM of 750 kg.
f) Axle or suspension group capacity. This figure should always equal or exceed the ATM by a comfortable margin. E.g. In our example 900 kg to 1200 kg.
