    Hi, can anyone give me an idea what the tyre pressures should be on my Camper.
    It's a Compass Avantgarde on a Peugeot Boxer, the weight in the log book is, 3000kgs.
    I can not find anything in my books about tyre pressure and the sticker on the door says 80 bar, that can't be right.

    You need the exact details of the tyres, then you need the front and rear axle weights, ideally accurate ones but the plated ones will do if you can't get it weighed.

    Once you have all that you need to email the tyre manufacturers and they will give you the correct pressures.

    80 bar obviously won't be correct but 80psi might well be. They aren't the same.

    Jes' normally I'd be asking for a front row seat, but in this case - I'll be content to watch the outcome on Liveleak :D

    More like 5.2 bar or 80 psi.

    Try 70 psi. But read the tyre sidewall first to see if a max set there.
