    No hearsay but a direct report
    Des and Donna just got back from Germany / Italy.
    On the way home they were stopped by the German motorway police and were weighed
    Des pooped it a bit as he knew he had a full water tank, full diesel and he had three slabs of beer on board
    They weighed the front, weighed the rear and were informed they were 100 kilos over in total
    The officer smiled and said that although they were over it was so little they were fine, and waved then on.

    The motorhome is a 2007 Roller Team ( 625 I think ) rated at 3500 kilos

    We strayed into Germany last year on the way back from Alsace good job they didn't stop us good payload allowance but 120 bottles of wine could have been embarrasing :oops:!!!

    No idea but I will ask when I next see them.

    Des did say the officer was very courteous and smiled quite a bit.. At no time did he ask to look in the van at all

    We were weighed in Austria before going up a mountain pass, no problem, good job too, the Austrians take delight in "doing" foreigners.
