    I probably know the answer already but I thought I'd just confirm my thoughts by asking the Oricals on here.

    In the rear garage on our van there is a sticker that states the max weight must not exceed 150kgs

    I assume this is the max weight for the garage and not the additional axle weight and would not include the bikes on the rear rack.

    I think you are right. 150kg max weight in the garage. However, you would need to know the axle weight and all up weight to ensure your bikes + full garage don't take you over the limit.

    The only reason to have a max weight is to prevent overloading and or possible damage to extended chassis, in both cases I would assume the weight of bikes on the rear SHOULD be included. If however it refers only to the weight the floor itself can can carry then that speaks for itself. I am happy to be proven wrong.
