    We're considering a 2010 Pilote Reference P680 but have the suspicion that the payload figure may be a bit low. We haven't found any data on this van online and the dealership is closed today so wondered if anyone has one of these or some technical data. The version we are looking at is the French bed one with the large external access door.

    Thanks for that. I believe that was for the transverse bed model (LGR) I think the French bed model is an LPR. Probably not a lot difference. I have seen some figures on a French website which suggested (if my translation is correct) that the payload may be 345kg!!
    I've seen the spec for other Pilote models and some state the payload (MIRO) as not including the driver! I wonder what else it doesn't include?

    I have a 2013 Pilote Reference P716 and the payload quoted by both Manufacturer and Dealer must have been snatched from thin air or someone's worked it out on the back of a fag packet.

    We have just about enough payload when fully loaded for holidays, two adults and one dog, but as it's supposed to be a five berth vehicle then three extra occupants would take it well over the 3500kgs.

    The P680 is a few inches shorter than ours but the interior looks almost identical except we have a drop down bed which takes up some of the payload.

    The only way to tell a payload, on a Pilote or any other Motorhome, is to get it weighed and that's what I'd suggest you do

    I've just checked my Autocruise figures. Quoted MIRO is 2771kg. When I took it to the weighbridge just after I bought it I got 2800kg so it looks like Autocruise got it right.
