5. CADDY REINFORCEMENT PLATE OPTION
5.1 Caddy Storage manufactures a robust shelving system and brackets so the system can be securely fitted to your vehicle. Due to a number of reasons including vehicle wall thickness, the way the vehicle is driven, the roads on which the vehicle is driven, the weight that is carried in the shelving and the length or type of the vehicle in which the system has been fitted, the walls in your vehicle may not be strong enough to hold the shelving fitted by Caddy Storage. Whilst the brackets and shelving may not fail, the vehicle walls may receive extra stress. It is your responsibility to talk to the Caddy Storage sales staff about whether you should upgrade to Caddy Cantrail Strengthening Plates prior to placing our order with Caddy Storage.
5.2 To the extent permitted by law Caddy Storage is not liable for any personal injury or loss or damage to the goods, your vehicle, cargo or any other item or material supplied or installed by Caddy Storage which arises from or in connection with the vehicle walls not being strong enough to support the brackets and shelving supplied.

The warranty does not cover broken or scratched glass, scratching on the stem of the gas struts, twisted or bent gas struts, scratching or rusting after installation, loss, accident, crazing resulting from impact or damage due to fire or forces of nature and theft. Canopy exterior paint defects include paint runs, low gloss, overspray, waves, pin holes, tape marks, polishing and/or sanding marks and visibility of touch up and dust/dirt in the paint. Warranty does not cover damage to the paint from stone chips, hail/windstorm damage, chemical/industrial fallout, bird/animal droppings or any other environmental condition. Damage or wear and tear to the vehicle’s paint finish caused by the canopy resting on the vehicle bed rails and from the canopy rear tailgate touching the vehicle tailgate are not warranted. In the event of any claim under this warranty we shall repair or replace the canopy or take corrective action at our option. In no case shall we accept any responsibility or liability for indirect or consequential loss or damage extending beyond the cost of repairing or replacing the canopy or any expense resulting from the transportation of the canopy to or from the place of repair.

- Inspecting the overall condition of the towbar; if it is showing rust and/or dirt, it may have been overloaded (do not exceed the towbar/vehicle load capacity)
- Inspecting vehicle manufacturers metal around mounting plates for any cracks or fatigue; at the sight of evident damage, contact Caddy Storage
11. VEHICLE LOADING
Your shelving and vehicle accessories that have been fitted to your vehicle by Caddy Storage will increase the tare mass of your vehicle. We suggest you re-weigh
your vehicle with these fittings to obtain a revised tare mass. The gross vehicle mass of your vehicle is recorded on the vehicle’s compliance plate or is available from the vehicle manufacturer. The difference between these weights (GVM – revised tare) is the maximum vehicle load and should not be exceeded. You must allow for the weight of fuel and all occupants within this maximum vehicle load and load your vehicle appropriately.
It is the responsibility of the drivers and / or the company they are employed with to ensure they do not overload their vehicle.
