    The manufacturers plate should be somewhere obvious at the front of the vehicle (on my Laika it's on the side of the passenger seat box).

    These are maximum permissible weights.

    The actual (real) weight will be specific to your own van depending on what options you've added (or taken away) and if you want to to know the weight empty or full (of water, fuel, provisions, clothes, etc.) The only way to know this is to load the van as you want it and take it to a weighbridge.

    Do you have the V5C? It should be on there. Our plate is on the side of the passenger (in our case driver) seat, but it could be anywhere depending on who uprated it - if indeed it has been uprated.

    Should have a GVW of around 3850kg (3.9t) if it is the 5 berth u2267. There will be a plate on the vehicle, either under the bonnet, near the seats or near the hab door.

    usually the plate will show 4 weights
    the vehicle gross weight
    the vehicle axle weights
    and the gross train weight this is max with a trailer included and is always the highest figure
    i assume there will be 5 weights if its tag axle
    none of these will tell you what the van actually weighs
    unladen weight may be on the v5
    or as said its a weigh bridge job

    5600kg is the Max Train Weight on our Laika - most info I can see on line Gross Vehicle Weight is 3850kg. If you give us all the figures on the plate we will be able to tell what the Max Permissable Weight is.
    Whatever the Max Weight is you should still have it weighed (if only to find out how much Wine you can carry!)
