    There will be a plate under the bonnet with the maximum total weight and each axle weight.

    You then need to load your m/h with everything you normally travel with including any water, fuel, passengers and pets and weigh it on a weighbridge (do the whole van and then one axle). Check the results against the plated weights to ensure you are not overloaded.

    I kinda know all that gear . Was just wondering whether some one out there would give me a rough idea to assess how comfortable I am against the payload spec

    Regards

    You will need to weigh the van empty and then subtract this from gross weight on the vehicle plate.

    Everyone has different requirements for what they carry so the only way is the weighbridge method. You should get a print-out from the w/bridge which would be useful to show the authorities if you get stopped.

    You do sound very expert on this area - I am convinced!

    Hi Neville ... not a case of being an expert, I'm still learning and as far as I am aware there is no other way that can be so accurate.
