Understanding the GVM of your vehicle is paramount to your safety on the road and making sure you are meeting Government regulations. GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) is the maximum weight allowed for a vehicle when its fully loaded. All vehicles have a GVM as part of the manufacturers Australia Design Rule (ADR) approval.
A vehicles GVM can easily be reached when fitting aftermarket accessories such as steel trays, bullbar, even with two or more large adults riding in the vehicle. As it is easy to reach the maximum GVM, it is important to understand your vehicles weight and the load weight you are carrying. Upgrading your GVM can help prevent safety hazards and making you susceptible to fines.
