    Just took our 740 Autograph to weighbridge fully loaded ready for our 5 month French tour starting in a couple off weeks, was expecting to be overloaded and have to re-load but nice surprise, we came in at 3420Kg, rear axle 1840 & front 1580, all within limits.

    For info if anyone is interested included in the weight was 150w solar panel, 2 x 110ah batteries, Fiamma 4.5m awning, bike rack with 2 bikes, dog trailer, full tank of diesel, full tank of fresh water, empty grey water. The two of us plus dog (Border Terrier) clothes, food & everything ready to go.

    This was better than what I thought, obviously still close to the max, but still well pleased. (y)(y)

    Here's a pic very similar to a kids trailer, you tow it behind bike. Weighs 10kg, folds up nicely, wheels come off and stores in under bed locker. Ideal for MoHo and means we are able to do long cycle rides that we enjoy and take the dog with us as he is getting on a bit now, we call it the chariot!!! Pampered pooch or what.

    Well it's a good job or you may have had to leave the dog at home ::bigsmile:

    Hope for our 745 then - you wouldn't believe how empty our MH is

    I know this is an oldish thread, but just thought it'd be interesting to update with our experience: we took our 625 to the weighbridge for the first time today and came in at 2980kg (1420kg on the rear axle). That's with half a tank of fuel, full fresh water, bikes on the back, everything packed bar a few last minute bits and bobs (y)

    Pretty pleased with that - we've got around 275kg to spare.....that's a couple of hundred bottles of wine ;) (though I'm not sure we've got enough room to store that much LOL).

    That's good news. On our recent French trip for the return journey we made sure we had minimum fresh water and empty grey waste and ate all those "just in case" tins of food that we stocked up with before we left home, you can then make up the weight loads more lovely wine.
