To confirm a pre-order for a Southern range trailer, a 10% holding deposit is taken. The balance is then payable on completion of your new trailer.

We will then contact you 10-12 weeks prior to manufacturing to finalise your order at which time a further 40% instalment is due for payment. Once services have been completed a final balance of payment will be due.

In addition, registration or freight charges will also be invoiced. Once payment is received, we will contact you ASAP to arrange the collection or delivery arrangements to finalise the order.

Q: What do I need to know about trailer weights?

Tare Mass - is the total mass of the trailer with no load, unoccupied, and all standard equipment and any options fitted. Non-transport fluid reservoirs such as water tanks and wastewater tanks fitted to trailers are measured empty. After-market optional add-ons (TV, mattresses, extra gas bottles, awnings etc.) aren’t included in the tare mass and are considered as a load, so must be included in your ATM measurement. 

Aggregate Trailer Mass (ATM) - is the total mass of the trailer when carrying the maximum load recommended by the manufacturer. The ATM is measured with the trailer/caravan unhitched from your towing vehicle and resting on its jockey wheel. The maximum ATM of your trailer mustn’t be exceeded. Weigh your loaded trailer/caravan resting on its jockey wheel, including full water tank, gas tanks and everything you'd pack to go travelling to ensure the measured mass doesn't exceed your specified ATM capacity. 

Gross Trailer Mass (GTM) - is the maximum mass recommended of your fully loaded trailer when it is hitched to your tow vehicle. The GTM of the trailer is transmitted to the ground by only the trailer tyres and excludes the mass distributed to the towing vehicle through the coupling. The GTM of your trailer mustn’t be exceeded. Weigh your loaded trailer when it is attached to your towing vehicle to ensure your measured mass doesn't exceed your specified GTM capacity.

Q: Now my trailer is ready, where do I pick up my new trailer? Can I get it delivered?
