The van is all loaded up barring the final few little bits and pieces so I thought it would be a good time to take it to the weighbridge.
The results wasn't too bad, but we were overweight.
The GVM of the vehicle is 3850 kilos this weight is the all up weight including me Elaine the dogs etc. We came in at 3960 kilos, so we are 110 kilos overweight.
The front axle max weight is 1800 kilos, we came in at 1740 kilos. The rear axle max weight is 2250 kilos and we came in at 2220 kilos.
So all up we are 2.85% overweight, reading through all the info on the internet you are allowed about 5% overweight, so we should be right.
One thing for I wont be putting a scooter on the back, by the time you add on the weight of the scooter plus the rack I reckon it would add about 150 kilos to the back axle.
It is interesting to see the motorhomes in mainland Europe, nearly all of them carry scooters and motorbikes on the back, I reckon about 80% of them are overloaded.
The only way to do it legally would be to tow a trailer, but I really don't want to do that.
Tomorrow we are off to Milton Keynes again to put the final bits and pieces from the house into storage at my mothers.
