Cub Campers is a family-owned Australian business, manufacturing a large range of camper trailers from their NSW factory.
As trailer manufacturers, Cub Campers are legally required to record a variety of data as well as weight information for every trailer they produce. This includes the Tare Mass (or the weight of the trailer as built, with all factory fixtures and options), the Tow Ball Mass (which is the weight applied to the towing vehicle’s “tow ball” when the trailer is connected) and the Aggregate Trailer Mass (which is the maximum allowable weight of the camper trailer fully laden and sitting on the jockey wheel).
Cub Campers had used the same trailer weighing system for years, but it had seen better days. With trailer regulations and compliance requirements expected to tighten, the management team decided they needed a more modern, efficient, and future-proof system. Cub Campers also wanted a weighing system that was safer for their staff to use as the original system required a degree of manual handling. Cub Campers contacted NWI Group to look for advice and assistance in finding an operationally and commercially sound outcome.
