PostSubject: OPUS Trailer Tents now in stock at Brazilian Kampers   Wed Dec 14, 2016 5:21 pm

Hi All,

Brazilian Kampers have now become the South of England dealer for OPUS trailer tents!

At a recent visit to the NEC we were blown away with the small and practicality of these tents.

The 6 sleep six and a further 4 in the side awning so 10 people in total with built in heaters, pop up TV screens, cooker, sink fridge etc!

Some images below of our demo model...

Many Thanks

Ian BK

One thing I will say, is that whenever I'm towing the jetski, the sway in my BraziBay is significantly reduced.

Hi All,

They come in Orange, Blue, Red , Grey and will be bringing out a black one!

We have only had it a few weeks so yet to road test, they weigh 850kg and the nose weight is 70kg.

Once we have some time we will photo it in detail, the web site is being updated with content about them in the new year also. There is a catalogue on our site also..

Prices from £12995..

Ian

Anyone who passed their test after 1st Jan 1997 will need to pass a trailer test to tow a trailer more than 750kg.

Shame they couldn't save 100kg! Or was that a typo? If I was making these I'd be trying very hard indeed to keep it below 750kg!

Hi,

You can tow a trailer over 750kg as long as the combined mass of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3,500kg

So you are able to tow this on a standard licence with no problems at all...

Many Thanks

Ian

Thank you for that correction - I didn't realise that you could tow a trailer over 750kg at all on a standard licence. Embarassed Very clear here https://www.gov.uk/towing-with-car/what-you-can-tow.

2300kg according to my (Portuguese) handbook!

But the rules go by Max Authorised Mass, not the actual weight. According to the OPUS web site at http://www.opuscamper.co.uk/opus.html the MTPLM (Max Technical Permissible Laden Mass) of the trailer is 1500kg. Is that the same as Max Authorised Mass? 2300kg+1500kg=3800kg Sad 2505kg+1500kg=4005kg Sad Sad

Hi All,

Hopefully this clears it up for you!

Driving Licence Rules & What You Can Tow
The rules on what you can tow are different depending on when you passed your driving test:
Licences issued from 19th January 2013
From 19th January 2013, drivers passing a category B (car and small vehicle) test can tow:
• Small trailers weighing no more than 750kg
• A trailer over 750kg as long as the combined weight of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3,500kg (3.5 tonnes) Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM). This is also known as gross vehicle weight (GVW) or permissible maximum weight.
If you want to tow a trailer weighing more than 750kg, when the combined weight of the towing vehicle and trailer is more than 3,500kg, you’ll have to pass a further test and get B+E entitlement on your licence. You’ll then be able to tow trailers up to 3,500kg.
Licences held from 1st January 1997
If you passed your driving test after 1st January 1997 and have an ordinary category B (car) licence, you can:
• Drive a vehicle up to 3,500kg MAM towing a trailer of up to 750kg MAM
• Tow a trailer over 750kg MAM as long as the combined MAM of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3,500kg
For anything heavier you need to take a category B+E driving test.
Licences held before 1st January 1997
If you passed your car test before 1st January 1997 you’re generally entitled to drive a vehicle and trailer combination up to 8,250kg MAM.
This is the weight of a vehicle or trailer including the maximum load that can be carried safely when it’s being used on the road.
You also have entitlement to drive a minibus with a trailer over 750kg MAM.


Can I Tow The OPUS® Camper?
• Even drivers on a restricted licence can tow a trailer over 750kg as long as the combined weight of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3,500kg (3.5 tonnes) Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM).

•The OPUS® Camper has a MAM of 1050kg, so the tow car cannot have a MAM of more than 2450kg for anyone passing their test after 1st January 1997.

For example: A 2.0L Ford Mondeo Estate has a MAM of 2330kg, so the total weight with an OPUS Camper is 3380kg.

Nb. Customers should refer to their own vehicle spec to ensure correct MAM and towing weights. The information above was taken directly from the DVLA website on 06/02/16.

Many Thanks

Ian Brazilian Kampers Ltd
