    Did my B584 on Wednesday. Fully loaded inc. water and with two + two Whippets inside it was 85kg over. Then there's the trailer noseweight to add. It's still at 3500kg on a Maxi chassis so there's room to move up.

    Sold our Autosleeper, always worried about the payload, even though we had it uprated.
    Now, we have a much larger RV, our payload is 1600kg!
    That's a lot of beer and FB pies......

    @Forestboy. Hi Rory,

    We weighed our six legger at a DVSA weighbridge on the way to Folkestone (April) and had 250kgs left on the front (2000kgs max) and 110kgs left on the rear (3000kgs max). With the beer and wine I picked up yesterday at Calais, we can knock a good few Kilos off that now. :LOL:
    There was one guy at Pidou's who loaded up one of those tall trolley cages full of wine into his ageing 3500/3850kgs MH. :eek: There was no way that he wasn't overweight.

    Obviously, we're not carrying a motorbike ;) but if need be, we can uprate on the rear axles by another 500kgs.

    You and the the "Handbag collector" have a great time away. (y)

    Cheers for now,

    Jock. :)
