    We saw this at Dusseldorf and it ticks pretty much all our boxes (apart from the price hike on the €/£).
    However the literature from Carthago suggests running weight of 2835kg but the test in ProMobil suggests 3240 which doesn't leave much payload - 260kg.
    Anyone advise why the differential - if it is so low as I'm not yet 60 (next week :( ) then I'd better think about the "heavy" chassis.
    What have you owners found regards Carthago payloads?
    Cheers

    Test vehicles, particularly cars, are usually supplied to journalists in 'top of the range' form.
    Perhaps the ProMobil vehicle was loaded with goodies.
    Our C-line was surprisingly light when we weighed it before loading it and had a huge payload.
    It is on the 'heavy' chassis though and we had it updated to 4500kg.

    Ours has the heavy chassis 4250kg I think
    Fully loaded it weighed in at 4000kg so a bit of weight to spare.

    We have a Carthago C Tourer 148 - bought second hand
    We uprated to 3850 straight away after weighing it -paper exercise - No increase on rear axle limit

    Thanks - how close to the 3,500kg limit were you?

    Can't find where we wrote weights down - but had we been full of diesel - gas and water - then we would have been over - so fine for traveling in UK - but fully loaded to go abroad we will need the extra weight limit

    Ouch, thanks!! So much for Lightweight... Having said that the Carthago website Unladen Weight in Standard Condition 2640 - need to get the spreadsheet and accessory weight book out.

    Fully laden with water, diesel, bikes etc, but no food, wine or clothes we were 3400 kg on our Carthago c tourer 143. Well impressed after our overweight Bolero ( some of that may have been water in the floor!!)
