Good Idea No. 5 – Check your equipment – AGAIN!

We purchased the caddy in New South Wales a year ago to use for towing our Suzuki. Now back in Perth, and coming up to registration renewal time, we decided to have it registered in Western Australia.

After having the caddy officially weighed and inspected in Perth, not only have we discovered that the NSW registration papers were incorrect in that the tare weight was 120.kgs heavier than the caddy’s actual tare weight, but the tyre guards were out past the tyres too far, making the caddy 5.cms over-width.

That now fixed, papers in order, registration in WA now complete – but what a hassle. Ready for another road trip tomorrow – heading south.
