Caravan Tyre Pressure Formula

Ever wondered what the correct tyre pressure for your New Age Caravan is? Rest assured we have developed a formula for you to use. Before beginning, make sure you have gone and looked in the tunnel boot of your caravan and cited the compliance plate (you will need to note down the ATM on the compliance plate). Then go and look at the tyres on your caravan – you will need to note down the Max Tyre Pressure which is written on the wall of the tyre (in PSI)

MAX TYRE PRESSURE (PSI)÷ MAX TYRE LOAD (KG) = ????

???? x  ATM (KG) ÷ HOW MANY WHEELS ON ROAD = CORRECT TYRE PRESSURE

For Example:

  • For a Single Axle Caravan (2 wheels on the Road)
  • Max Tyre Pressure 80psi
  • Max Tyre Load 1400kg
  • ATM 2000KG

80 ÷ 1400 = 0.05714286

0.05714256 x 2000 ÷ 2 = 57psi
