    I am new to the forum and to MH'ing in the UK (toured around North America & Canada in one years ago so not a complete novice).

    We have just purchased a 2006 Ci Carioca 5 6 berth with the 2.3jtd engine. I am struggling to find a definitive max weight for it. The VIN under the bonnet says 3300kg, which I understand as being the original chassis details but I cannot find a CI makers plate anywhere to say what CI rated the MH at once converted. I have read 3500kg on some sites but obviously want to make sure.

    If anyone has one of these and can point me as to where the makers plate may be or tell me what that says that'd be great. Hopefully you can see this pic to see what the van looks like

    If the vin plate says 3300kgs, that is your maximum gross weight, unless the manufacturer has up rated the gross weight during manufacturer. Your log book should confirm the maximum gross weight.

    If it is 3300kgs, and you need additional payload, contact www.svtech.co.uk they may be able to up rate your max weight on a "paper exercise."

    Thanks Nomadic. I'll see what info is on the V5 when it gets returned from DVLA and go from there.
